IIT Motorsports

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) at Illinois Institute of Technology offers students of all majors the opportunity to gain real life experience in designing, building, and promoting a competitive electric Formula SAE race car. By demonstrating team-oriented performance on the racetrack as well as in the garage, theoretical knowledge meets interdisciplinary skills. Through this, we aim to ensure the confidence and exceed the expectations of the university and our partners.

Our team provides numerous educational and professional skills related to vehicular design.
