As well as many other roles.

About the Competition:

Formula Student (FS) is Europe's most established educational engineering competition and celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2023.

Backed by industry and high-profile engineers such Patron and Ross Brawn OBE, the competition aims to develop enterprising and innovative young engineers and encourage more young people to take up a career in engineering, with over 100 university teams taking part every year. 

The project usually forms part of a degree-level project and is viewed by the motorsport industry as the standard for engineering graduates to meet, transitioning them from university to the workplace. It is a kite-mark for real-world engineering experience, combining practical engineering experience with soft skills including business planning and project management.
