Formula Student is the largest engineering competition in the world for students. The project is designed to increase the quality of newly examined engineers by giving them more practical experience during their studies. Each year, Formula Student teams are challenged to make a fictional manufacturing company to design and develop a small formula-style racing car targeted at the nonprofessional weekend autocross enthusiasts. Based on a predetermined set of templates and rules, they must design the fastest, most effective racing vehicle possible while minimizing costs, maximizing reliability, and utilizing the latest automotive technologies. Competitions are held all over the world and teams are judged by leading engineers from the automotive industry on not only how the car performs but also how well it is engineered.


As the chief engineer you are the final one responsible for the design of the car. You work together with the department leaders to find the best compromise between all the departments. Checking of all the parts that are designed is also one of your responsibilities as well as creating the complete assemblies of the car. Therefor it is vital that you know Solidworks like the back of your hand. As chief engineer you are juggling between cost, size, material usage and the wishes of each department. This function requires you to continue with the project after the internship.


  • A final assembly of the HFS-05 that is ready to go into production.
  • Guaranteed rule compliance of the total car assembly.
  • A well managed and organized management team
  • Literature report
