This group is for those interested in cars and/or racing and want to get involved
in the fun of building and racing a car and see engineering in action. All students
are welcomed and encouraged to participate!
The Ferris Formula SAE team endeavors to compete in the annual Formula SAE Michigan
engineering design competition, hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers. This
competition challenges collegiate teams to design, construct and market an open-wheeled
formula-style racing vehicle for off-highway recreational use, and is contested by
over 120 institutions from around the world. Ferris State University students have
competed since 2006, and continue to apply, diversify, and validate knowledge gained
in the classroom through membership in Ferris Formula SAE.
We have working meetings every Tuesday and Thursday at 7 PM. Locations vary, frequently in Swan 221 or 218, but also in AUT 112 and the Swan Machine
Tool lab. Best way to know is to be on the group's email list.
Ferris Formula SAE membership is an open-ended opportunity to gain meaningful experience
in product development, vehicle design, marketing, and project management, among other
areas. The challenges faced in Formula SAE development projects closely resemble those
encountered in modern industry, which make Formula SAE competitors experienced and
knowledgeable candidates in today's job market. Alumni of the Ferris Formula SAE team
currently hold positions in vehicle development, powersports development, engine development,
CAD drafting, machining, automation, welding engineering, service engineering, and
other areas of industry.
