Welcome to the homepage of Florida Tech Motorsports, the name given to the Formula SAE team of Florida Institute of Technology located in Melbourne, Florida. The team consists of 22 seniors pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering. Underclassmen from various degree programs also assist the team. The team has been organized by division into four sub-systems of the vehicle: Powertrain, Chassis, Suspension and Aerodynamics.
Over the years Florida Tech Engineering students in the Motorsports program have produced competitive senior design projects providing a valuable asset to the institution. The team successfully competes at the international FSAE competition held in Michigan every year. The team is forced to pay acute attention to detailed design. This methodology is carried over to manufacturing in order to produce an excellent product. Our panel of advisers consist of world renowned professors who constantly guide the team towards success.
Planning for the competition starts a year in advance to give the team members enough time to design, analyze, manufacture and test. The team is currently working on the design and development of a revolutionary new design will serve as design platform for the future iterations. The team currently is focusing all its resources in the internal combustion car, however due to our modular design the platform will felicitate the design of electronic vehicles.
We would sincerely like to thank all our sponsors without whom we would not have been able to build our cars with the latest improvements in technology and produce optimum results. Our highly valued sponsors are the keystone that makes Florida Tech Motorsports possible and without their constant support the team would not be able to excel in its endeavors.
