Who are we?
We are San Jose State University's Formula SAE electric race team consisting of various engineering disciplines, science disciplines, and business students. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is student-led and driven. Through this process, our members are shaped to apply their technical skills in a collaborative setting and deliver an electric vehicle within a realistic production cycle. This includes working within the confines of established rules, justification of the designs, and scrupulous research and testing.
In addition, members also must critically analyze variables that may arise, as well as finding creative solutions to overcome them. Being a part of the Spartan Racing Electric team illustrates their dedication to being part of a long-term project with all its frustrations and glories. They will gain first-hand experiences with respect to their field and the nuances that are not typically taught within their academic discipline. Thus, preparing every team member to be a competitive individual in the engineering labor force. At Spartan Racing Electric we strive to create a cleaner future. Our members pioneer electric technology that can be seen on the roads of tomorrow.
1. Compete in all static and dynamic events at competition
2. Win first place at competition
3. Reduce weight and increase performance
4. Raise enough money to complete our objectives
Why are we raising this money?
The money will go towards funding the SRE-5 project and its associated logistics. For the car to be manufactured and assembled, we need to purchase raw materials, composites, off-shelf parts, tools, and machining time. Moreover, because our vehicle is fully electrical-driven, drivetrain components are equivalently complex and costly compared to our internal combustion counterparts. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our team heavily relies on raising funds to operate a project of this magnitude.
