Overview of recent announcements, deadlines, and other information for teams.
Formula Hybrid gave me a unique experience with blending electrical and mechanical disciplines that led me to pursue mechatronics as a specialization in school and get into industrial automation. Now I use the project management and engineering skills I developed competing for Hybrid every day for motion and stress analysis, instrumentation, and controls development.
Formula Hybrid was probably the most enjoyable part of my undergraduate experience. Before I even enrolled in grad school, I researched similar design/build student teams at the universities that I was considering because I knew it was something that I wanted to continue with. When I got to Stanford, before my classes even started in the Fall, I joined the Stanford Solar Car team. I used my knowledge and skills from my involvement with MSOE’s FH team to jump right in and help design and build various components of the chassis, body, suspension, and battery subsystems.
