Terps Racing is one of the most popular and competitive student teams on campus. This program, part of a global initiative of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), challenges undergraduate students to design, build, and race either a Formula-style race car or Baja-style off-road vehicle.
Through this practical hands-on experience, students apply their academic knowledge and additionally gain team-building, collaboration, and leadership skills. Students also develop expertise in fabrication, design-for-manufacturing practice (DFM), computer-aided design (CAD), finite element analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and design analysis and testing.
Since its establishment in 1982, Terps Racing has participated in over 60 races. Terps Racers are some of the school’s most sought-after candidates by top employers upon graduation.
