Student experience

DMU Racing

The Formula Student challenge – run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers – challenges universities from across the world to design, build and race a single seat racing car in one year. The cars are then judged on their speed, acceleration, handling and endurance, while the teams are tested on their design, costing and business presentation skills. DMU Racing is our university’s entry into the competition, and is proudly entering its fourth year in competing at the event.
