Oxford University Racing is a team of undergraduate students from the University of Oxford that aims to build an electric race-car – from scratch – to compete in the annual IMechE Formula Student competition.
With members from across the student body and across the world, we are a highly passionate and ambitious team; whilst engineers make up the majority of our technical division, we encourage students from any subject to apply for roles in operations.
These employers have shown they are particularly interested in members of our Society. It makes sense to click on their logos to visit their Company Hubs, ‘Follow’ them and apply!

The project is entirely student-run from recruiting corporate sponsors or pitching the car’s economic viability to designing the powertrain or optimising aerodynamics.
On the operations side we have positions in Marketing, Sponsorship and Business whilst technical sub-teams include Chassis, Battery, and Electronics amongst others; it is a great opportunity for students to gain some practical experience whilst still completing their degree.
We are conscious of the future of the automobile industry driving us to be at the forefront of technological innovation, as well as conscious of the effect the industry has on the environment, leading us to build an electric car.
We hold a three hour workshop every Saturday afternoon and most sub-teams have an additional meeting during the week. In the early stages, these workshops focus on design and planning but as we move closer to the competition, the technical teams will begin building the car. We are working towards competing in both static events, such as a business presentation, and dynamic events, which will test the limits of the car, at the Formula Student competition.
We will be talking about our experience during the design, manufacture, and management of the team building Oxford's first race car, sharing funny stories, and answering any questions.
