About Formula SAE-Australasia

Formula SAE-Australasia is an engineering education experience for university students at the highest level. Run by the Society of Automotive Engineers Australasia (SAE-A), Formula SAE-A is an international engineering competition centred on the design, construction and racing of a prototype Formula-style vehicle.

The competition provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills in design, management, manufacturing, communication, research and business operations in a real world environment. Static and dynamic events are used to judge teams, and provide them with an overall score.

What Formula SAE-A develops in students:

Project management skills

  • From start to finish, understanding the tasks and processes required to achieve a successful outcome.

Teamwork skills

  • Working together to design and create technical aspects, ensuring they fit in to a team’s overall plan.

Networks

  • Liaising with current professionals and technical experts means students have a leg up when taking a leap of faith out into the industry.

Compliance

  • Having to abide by a long list of rules when designing and building a car means students learn to adhere to legislation.
