Founded and run by the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth since 2006, Formula Hybrid takes place each spring at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. The competition is part of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Collegiate Design Series and is regarded as the most complex and dynamic of the series.
The Formula Hybrid competition is an interdisciplinary design and engineering challenge for undergraduate and graduate university students. They must collaboratively design and build a formula-style hybrid or electric-only racecar and compete in a series of events. This educational competition emphasizes drivetrain innovation and fuel efficiency in a high-performance application.
Formula Hybrid gives students hands-on experience with the challenges of creating and implementing a wide variety of technologies while being part of an interdisciplinary team. Students get a unique opportunity to turn classroom concepts into tangible skills and to interact with some of the most talented professionals in the emerging technology industries.
