Help FSAE travel to Nebraska!

FSAE Travels to Lincoln, Nebraska!

We are the Society of Automotive Engineers. We are a group of undergraduate students who function within the College of Engineering, but is not limited to engineering students. Every year our group designs and manufactures a racecar from scratch. The effort is completely student driven to better understand operating in a small business dynamic with an emphasis on science and engineering. We participate in a variety of events to help promote the College of Engineering as well as draw interest for our project.

The first car was produced in 1998. The club has grown tremendously in nearly twenty years and has produced many top-notch racecars. Our group has also organized automotive related classes within the College of Engineering to help grow the program. Our dedication and commitment to the success of this club helps produce not only a racecar, but well rounded students and graduates of the University of Delaware.

Functioning as a competitive race team, our club acquires numerous expenses. We operate on a very lean budget compared to other University FSAE clubs. For example our current racecar construct is estimated to cost $18,000, which is a quarter of what comparable universities spend on their racecars.

This year the team has utilized a variety of innovative factors to help produce a racecar faster than any previous years. With that being said, the team still needs to produce the funds to travel to competition. Competition costs are a tremendous expense for the team as we must travel to Lincoln, Nebraska for one week in June. The most expensive portions are dedicated to specific travel of the racecar and other related items necessary to compete (tools, tires, engines, various spare parts). Special amenities must be arranged to ensure a safe transportation of our materials for over 1200 miles one-way!
