Carnegie Mellon Racing

Carnegie Mellon Racing (CMR) is the student chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers at Carnegie Mellon University. Every year, we design and fabricate an all-electric, open-wheeled racing vehicle to compete in the international Formula SAE Electric and Formula Hybrid competitions. Our vehicles’ performance rivals established supercars with 0-60mph times of 4.5 seconds and over 2Gs of lateral acceleration.

We are open to all students in the Carnegie Mellon community and provide a unique opportunity to learn and apply skills beyond the scope of the classroom. We attract the highest level of students from Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and other departments for a project that demands not only engineering prowess and fabrication skill, but also leadership and teamwork ability. Time and again, our members rate membership in Carnegie Mellon Racing as a key facet in their educations and accruement of experience. Your help will ensure the viability and success of Carnegie Mellon Racing and aid in the development of many determined students. 

We are looking to raise $7,500 to purchase two electric motors for this year's race car.
