Berkeley Formula Racing gives you the chance to apply what you learn in school on a large-scale hands-on, multidisciplinary project. You’ll be able to explore the intricacies of designing and building a racecar, learn about the engineering design process, and interact with professional engineers, all while spending time with others who share the same passion as you. And besides, who doesn’t like racecars?
What are the requirements to join?
The only requirement is a desire to learn! Regardless of your field, background, or past experience, you’ll find some place on the team where you’ll fit right in. Hard work and dedication will take you far. Connect with our team and apply during your fall semester. We look forwards to meeting you!
