Combining your interest in motorsports with your studies? That’s possible – at Ecurie Aix, the Formula Student team of RWTH Aachen. Formula Student is the world’s biggest design competition for students. Every year, the teams design, manufacture and test a formula-type racecar before competing on famous racetracks all around Europe against 500 other teams from all over the world. The team is divided into eight different departments. Apart from the technical departments like aerodynamics or the electrical powertrain, there are also business questions that matter to be able to fight for the top spots at the competitions. Ecurie Aix is building one race car which can be either driven by a driver or drive fully autonomously by itself – with this car, the team is competing in the categories “electrical” and “driverless”. In the team, you not only learn the specifics of motorsports, but also how the development of a prototype takes place and how to work interdisciplinary in a team. Apart from the development of specific parts and assemblies like the wheel package incl. the e-machine or the inverter, you also learn how to manufacture fiber composite parts. Ecurie Aix also offers the chance to write your thesis in cooperation with one of the many partnering institutes. Sounds interesting?
