Engineering & Design student competition teams

Our student-led competition teams design, build and race a range of fuel, electric and autonomous vehicles each year, competing in the UK and worldwide.

Meet the teams

Our degrees give our students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through project work. This includes the chance to join one of our competition teams to compete against other universities' student teams each year.
