Are you passionate about (autonomous) cars and motorsport? Are you looking for opportunities to apply theoretical knowledge to a real-life project? Do you want to compete with the best technical universities from around the globe? Do you want to learn about working in a professional engineering environment? Then look no further than Formula Student Team Delft!
Every year, from the ground up, our team designs, constructs, and races a formula-style single-seater car at the largest international student engineering competition in the world! Work with an international, inspiring collective of like-minded peers, get valuable hands-on experience with cutting-edge automotive engineering, and travel across Europe to participate in prestigious racing events at such iconic locations as the Hockenheimring and Silverstone! Join Formula Student Team Delft today!
Design, build, race, and win!
There are many different jobs that need to be done within the team, both engineering and logistical. The tasks our members have to perform range from contacting sponsors to constructing 3D models of the car to implementing and testing software for autonomous racing to organising the logistics for the competition- and press events! Our team employs a highly diverse group of students with various technical and cultural backgrounds to ensure that the team is firing on all cylinders and spinning all four wheels throughout the entirety of the season!
2020 was a year of uncertainties; who are we to tell you... But you may also have heard that TU Delft used that time to start a redirection program to prompt more innovative and socially relevant projects.
To our surprise, the committee have decided our autonomous cars are NOT. This means that we will not be able to use the D:Dreamhall facilities during the 2021/22 season. A big blow?
Well, owed to Covid, we are not able to use them now, either; and we still make do! Having just acquired our own machines (pictured!), we also have a fully equipped workshop available next to our office in the Schiehal in Delft. Other work has been outsourced or takes place at some of our partners' facilities.
While the current team mostly work from home, some Corona-proof production will commence soon! You will be able to follow the built of the DUT21 on our instagram.
Our team and its departments must be managed by a highly motivated "core-team". As such, the lead and guide the design, production, built and racing. See their job descriptions:
Full-Time or Part-Time
Our backbone is formed by a large group of full-time and part-time members. See what departments to reinforce and gain experience in!
MSc Robotics Internship
For the first time, we are offering internship positions to Robotics and Vehicle Engineering students in the field of Autonomous Software engineering.
During your 15ECTS internship, you will be able to apply your knowledge gained during your studies and gain practical experience on a large multidisciplinary project. Available topics range from machine perception, state estimation & mapping, motion planning and controls to software tools used for simulation and testing to name a few.
As an intern, you will start in September 2021 and be part of the team during the first quarter of the academic year, or longer (for instance, continuing as a part-timer is recommended). Your internship will be handled by the TU Delft using the standard internship format and forms, which can he found here. When accepted by us, we will help you to file them! Apply to us by using the application form at the top of this page.
Minor (5th BSc Semester)
For some time now, we support spending part of a free minor as a project at FS Team Delft in one of our departments. In this opportunity you can obtain around half your credits in the first semester through a design and implementation project you do for a subsystem of the car.
The unique aspect: not only will you present your project to a committee of the university after the first semester, but you will also be able to actually experience it in operation on the car by building, completing, testing and perfecting it throughout the second semester.
To supplement this project, you will also follow some courses for the rest of the credits in the first semester.
Apply to us until March 31st by using the application form at the top of this page. Make sure you read the additional notes for minor applications and upload a CV and motivation letter. After an interview, we will hopefully hire you and then support you as best as possible with your project description, list of courses and the free minor application.
