SAE BRASIL Formula is a car development competition, where engineering students are challenged to design and build small formula racing cars.

The SAE BRASIL Formula competition expands students' technical knowledge and challenges them to experience the entire car development process - from conceptualizing to building.

This competition was created to provide a real-world environment, where students can practice the theories they learned in class. This real-world experience helps improve the students´ preparation for the job market.

SAE BRASIL Formula cars will be built by the students, while supervised by a teacher, over a one-year period.

Projects will be judged among other Brazilian engineering educational institutions.
