Who are we?

We are the Formula Cruisers, the student racing team of THUAS. We’re a culturally diverse, dynamic group of students from different majors and fields of expertise. We continuously work together on the project of designing, engineering, and marketing an electric race car suited for Formula Student competitions. We consider ourselves a steppingstone for any young professionals looking to do up experience in a multidisciplinary working environment. Together we focus on honing our skills and working towards the common goal of building an innovative, sustainable vehicle. 

Formula Student

Annually many Formula Student competitions are held all around the world. International student teams, like the Formula Cruisers, from over 600 universities take part in these engineering design competitions. Students get a chance to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical context. In these competitions points are earned in a series of ‘on track’ and ‘off track’ events. Some of the ‘on track’ events include autocross, efficiency, and endurance, while some of the ‘off track’ events include presenting a cost report and a business case. The team with the most points at the end of the competition wins.

Our Students

  • As a mechatronics student I worked as System Engineer during the Formula Cruiser project. I got to work with other students from a lot of different study courses, containing both technical and business directions. This multidisciplinary group helps me elevate my engineering skills by learning about all different aspects of a project. Because of the combined goal you really grow as a team and learn to achieve beyond your own level.

  • As a 3rd year commercial economics student my role in the Formula Cruisers team is that of Chief Communications. Some of my responsibilities include sponsor communications and social media management. During my time at this minor, I developed my abilities to work in a diverse organization with lots of hard-working people. Not only did I learn a lot, I also had a lot of fun along the way. I would highly recommend this project to any student who is looking to grow in their field of expertise!
