Purdue Formula Society of Automotive Engineers Earns Podium Finishes in International Competition
In this episode of “This Is Purdue,” we’re talking to Boilermakers who are part of the Purdue Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) student organization.
Each year, Purdue students design and build custom race cars, then compete against hundreds of other universities from around the world, including teams from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil and Germany, as part of SAE’s Collegiate Design Series.
In June 2022, the Purdue Formula team finished second overall at Michigan International Speedway, their best finish in 30 years!
Listen as Purdue Formula team members Helen Rumsey (ME’24), Dominic Nocon (ME’22) and Arpit Agarwal (AAE’23) describe how this student organization provides hands-on experience to create innovative car designs and tests engineering skills with real-world problems.
Plus, as the podcast team goes behind the scenes, you'll hear the excitement surrounding the students' first live unveiling of their custom-built cars.
