My Summer Antics: Formula Student 2019

Recommended Posts

This year was my last at university (5th year inc. sandwich placement), where i've been studying a 'Master of Engineering', MEng in Mechanical Engineering, and I have been awarded a 2:1 for that so I'm very happy with the result 🙂

As part of the final year, everyone needs to take part in a group project to develop through the year. I picked development of a single-seater race car, for the university's racing team, SHU Racing.  I was in charge of Powertrain (i.e. the engine and everything related to it). At the end of the year we take the car to Silverstone to compete against the other universities in a series of static and dynamic events.

This year, SHU Racing managed to achieve its highest score ever of 332.1 points, ranking the team 21st out of 81 teams (The best rank we've got too!). It was also the first time the team reached the final of any event (in this case the costing, one of the static events), making it a double win for us 😄


After getting back, the team met with HRH The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, to discuss technological innovations that the university has to offer, this was the cherry on top 😄 This year has been one of the best years ever for me, onwards to my engineering career! 😄
