University Racing Eindhoven (URE) is a student team of Eindhoven University of Technology. The team stands for technological innovation, teamwork and a passion for engineering. By competing in the Formula Student competition, the world's largest engineering design competition that takes place all over the world, we try to push ourselves and our cars to new limits! Using a combination of the engineering skills of all the members and some help from our dear partners, we are able to build a high-tech, revolutionary electric (and autonomous) Formula-style race-car every year. During the Formula Student events, the result of our hard work is put to the test. Determination to be the very best comes from a passion for engineering that lies deep within every one of our team members, resulting in something epic year after year. However, the events aren't only about winning, they are also a perfect place to share information with other teams and technological companies to develop new ideas.


Overall, URE is a great place to gain experience in designing, manufacturing and tuning the racecars of the future and being a team player in an environment of highly motivated engineering students.

Formula Student

Formula Student is the world's largest design competition for students, with competitions being held all over the globe every year. Formula Student traces its roots back to Formula SAE, which was founded in 1981 in Texas. The original concept behind the competition was that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a student design team to develop a small Formula-style race car. This car has to be designed, build, tested and driven by students, with every year a new car. The focus of the competition is on the design process of the car, promoting clever problem-solving and well-organized teams, resulting in the engineers of the future.

 

In 1998, Formula SAE came to Europe, with Formula Student being held in the UK. Now, 20 years later, the competition has spread all over the world. Over 700 teams worldwide compete in Formula Student every year, with Formula Student races being held in Germany, the UK, Austria, Hungary, the Netherlands and more. The competition has grown larger than its original concept, with the teams now being judged not only on their speed, but also their construction practices, financial planning, team structure, and sales arguments.

In 2010, Formula Student introduced a separate class for electric vehicles, Formula Student Electric. URE was one of the first teams to join the new class, with the URE05e, and has been competing in this class ever since. In 2017, Formula Student introduced the next innovation, a class for autonomous vehicles, Formula Student Driverless. Last year, URE started on their own project to build an autonomous race car. In the coming year, we will compete in this class as well, for the first time!
