The LTU Formula Electric Team is faced with the task of designing, fabricating, assembling, and testing an all-electric formula race car.
LTU incorporated the Formula Electric Team in the fall of 2018. This is a year-long senior design project made up of mechanical, electrical, and robotics engineering students. Each student is essential to complete this project.
This project provides students a unique opportunity to gain real hands on experience, something they could not get in the classroom. This project will help the students in their internships, and future jobs. With more and more companies going to all electric vehicles, this project will help students understand how to create a high performance racing vehicle that is also fuel efficient.
The LTU Formula Electric team has placed second in the world twice in it's history, out-performing teams from much larger universities.
