WELCOME TO THE TEAM

This academic year we welcome more than 70 members to design and build our first competition car. Most of our members participate in the project next to their studies, dedicating most of their spare time to the team. Also, we have 10 master students working on their Master's dissertation within UGent racing. They allow us to keep innovating and use state-of-the-art and self-developed technologies in our current and future generation. Together we are a multi-disciplinary team covering more than 10 different disciplines with various levels across the bachelor and master years. Discover by clicking on our different teams below.
