The Formula Hybrid competition is an interdisciplinary design and engineering challenge for undergraduate and graduate 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.
