The Senior FWC Chapter provides extensive career development opportunities for USF students. The Student Activities Chair attends monthly student section meetings, arranges for speakers and tours from among the many industrial members of the senior chapter, acts as a conduit for internship opportunities within the Tampa Bay region and encourages students to participate in national scholarship / grants / design competitions. USF students are always welcome and supported at the senior chapter meetings, providing strong networking opportunities.



Our mission is to serve our diverse global communities by advancing, disseminating and applying engineering knowledge for improving the quality of life; and communicating the excitement of engineering.

We achieve this through many types of events including but not limited to; biweekly meetings, electric car races, networking events, social events, design competitions, speakers, professional development, and conferences.

Society Of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International Student Chapter

Formula SAE® is a collegiate competition to conceive, design, fabricate, and compete with small formula-style racing cars. The restrictions on the car frame and engine are limited so that the knowledge, creativity, and imagination of the students are challenged. The cars are built with a team effort over a period of about one year and are taken to the annual competition for direct judging and comparison with approximately 120 other vehicles, and indirectly with over 500 vehicles, from colleges and universities throughout the world.  

USF Racing is open to any USF student.  The shop is located on the Tampa campus next to Parking and Transportation Services. The shop is open nearly every afternoon working on the year's design and manufacturing. New member meetings are held throughout the year and those meetings are announced on the website and Facebook page.

You do NOT have to be an engineering major to be a part of our team, we are open to all majors and there are no dues or fees to join.
