UW-Platteville's Formula SAE team is a group of motivated undergraduate students from a wide variety of disciplines including Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Industrial Technology Management, and Computer Science to name a few. The Formula team requires students to integrate the design process with what they have learned in the classroom to offer solutions to complex problems. The car is designed around a 2013 Yamaha WR-450f engine being controlled by a stand-alone Microsquirt ECU, has seen widespread use of aluminum and other composites, and will include a pneumatic paddle shifting system. In June, the team will be traveling to Brooklyn, Michigan to compete at Formula SAE Michigan.
