River Hawk Racing is a student-run organization functioning at UMass Lowell. We strive to create a Formula-style race car to compete in official competitions hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Internationally. SAE events are highly competitive, with an average of 120 colleges attending from around the world.
Our mission is to push students beyond their textbooks; to apply the knowledge they learn in their college career in a challenging project as they would in a real industry position. Students learn valuable ingenuity that can only come from a real-world project such as this. A tremendous amount of collaboration is needed between students of all disciplines to succeed. A common fault in the traditional education system is that students are not exposed to hands-on expAbouteriences necessary to tackle real-world challenges. Design skills and spreadsheets go beyond what is taught in the classroom, and with the global challenges of today, it is imperative to continue to produce highly skilled and highly adaptable students from all disciplines.
Formula SAE is an educational and dynamic competition. Each student team designs, builds and tests a prototype formula-style race car based on a series of rules, whose purpose is both ensuring ontrack safety and promoting clever problem solving. The prototype race car is judged in a variety of events. The competition tests students' abilities to design, finance, engineer, manufacture, and market themselves as a team. From concept to competition, the team is responsible for every step to ensure a successful result.
