Greenteam Stuttgart raced to victory at Germany’s famed Hockenheimring racetrack during this year’s FSG competition. FSG’s purpose is to offer a real-life experience of everything that goes into designing, manufacturing, supporting – and, of course – RACING a race car. Check out Formula Student TV to learn more about the process these students go through just to get involved with this amazing competition!
Siemens is proud to sponsor many of the teams competing at this year’s FSG, and especially proud to sponsor the winning team out of Stuttgart! This team of nearly 50 students cover every detail from the design/build aspects to the often-forgotten business side of engineering, including budgeting and business management and sponsor- and donor-development.
Unlike this competitions grown-up namesake, it’s not *all* about speed at FSG. Teams compete in a whole host of disciplines areas and must follow very strict rules in every aspect of their process. Points are awarded in:
- Engineering design
- Cost and manufacturing
- Business presentation
- Skid pad
- Fuel efficiency
Siemens is committed to competitions like FSG that empower the next generation of talent. We equip the teams with industrial strength software and the training and support they need to gain real-world skills in design, composites, simulation, systems engineering, mechatronics and lifecycle management using software likeSolid Edge, NX, Fibersim, Simcenter, Star CCM+, Tecnomatix and Teamcenter.
See you on the track in 2018!
