The Project

THE ORGANISATION

A project entirely organized by students of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. The project is developing constantly so the active members of the team are usually part of it at least for one year to make possible the continuity of the project. It is also possible to have external collaborations with the team, usually in case of smaller works connected to the project.

The project is funded by the University and the external Sponsors.

THE CONCEPT

Designing and manufacturing a formula type car (according to the rules, every year a new design) and racing with it in international competitions of the Formula Student series.
