Formula Hybrid challenges college and university students to design, build, and race high-performance, plug-in hybrid vehicles. Building on the Formula SAE program, Formula Hybrid adds an extra level of complexity: fuel efficiency.
With technological challenges for students with backgrounds in electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering, Formula Hybrid encourages interdisciplinary teamwork and innovation.
The 2011 competition will be held on May 1-4, 2011 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Loudon, NH. The competition is organized by Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth and carries the endorsement of the Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc. (SAE) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE). The event also includes an educational program for high school students interested in learning more about Formula Hybrid.
