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.


Keeping up to date with the planning of the car, and making sure that all parts are delivered, finished on time and as cheap as possible. Working close together with the team manager and the chief engineer. Your task is to make sure that all deadlines are being made, that design or deciding does not linger on for too long, and that the right decisions are being made. Ordering parts is also one of the other tasks you are involved with as well as making sure that everyone knows the rules so that the rules tests can be passed. This function requires you to continue with it after the internship!
