Dive into the world of car engineering with a captivating demonstration of aerodynamics by UCalgary Racing in the renowned Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) design. For a quarter of a century, passionate engineers have utilized the might of internal combustion engines to vie for superiority in the Formula SAE races. Now, as we herald the era of sustainability, witness the exhilarating shift to EV and electric powertrains. But it’s not just about technology; our rebranding symbolizes a renewed commitment to fostering inclusivity within both our academic institution and the broader community. Join us in celebrating this fusion of tradition and innovation, where engineering prowess meets community spirit.
