Working in our Team
The UPBracing Team is a student's initiative consisting mostly of aspiring engineers who have set themselves the goal to develop a formula student race car by working together interdisciplinarily in order to compete in international events and test the race car in a competitive environment. In the development phase students naturally collect a lot of practical experience as well as other key qualifications which are going to promote their career path. Time management, self-discipline and teamwork are just as imporant in our racing team as engineering skills.
Cooperation of diversified subject areas
A variety of study subjects can be found in our team. Next to students from Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Informatics, there are also Business Economics, International Business and Media Science students. There is a smooth transition between the different fields of study as steady exchange of knowledge is part of our daily business.
Crucial know-how for young professionals
Major industrial enterprises appreciate an involvement in the Formula Student as they know about the high degree of professionalism and structured work approaches of the teams. That is why Formula Student participation often serves as a stepping stone for a successful career. Of course, the Automotive industry plays a major role here. Correspondingly, a lot of our teams' members could already benefit and started a career at their employer of choice.

Bachelor/Master thesis

Components with high technological effort to put in development and simulation can be realised within the scope of a bachelor or master thesis. This involves intense examination with the component and potential design options over a longer period of time as well as the documentation part in order to keep the knowledge in the team long-term. Cooperation with diverse faculties and companies fosters the establishment of a strong network delivering a win-win situation. In the settling-in period it is extremely important to study race car technology, the official FSAE regulations and to get to know the whole team.

Did we raise your interest? Then please, fill in our contact form below to give us some background information. We are then going to contact you in no time to get to know you personally. The main period for applications is july till september, however, applying during the season is still possible. Most important for us is that you are motivated and able to show self-initiative. Of course, a passion for motorsports or other personal motivation to work in our team are helpful as well. You can start whereever you are independently from your current semestre as tasks differ in their degree of difficulty, however, be aware that they are all demanding. In the following you can find an overview about the corresponding prerequisites:

Semester 1-2
manufacturing-related tasks such as methods of working with fibre composites, welding tasks or assistance tasks for more complex components (construction, data interpretation

Semester 3-4
manufacturing-related tasks in requiring more self-initative, development tasks (e.g. construction, wiring diagrams, programming)

Semester 5-6 
More complex development-related tasks (e.g. firmness calculations, mechatronical gearing, simple simulation, programming)

Semester 7-10
more complex development-related tasks (e.g. simulation focused gearing of structural componens, multiple-body simulation, stream simulation, etc.)
In addition to these tasks there exist numerous administrative jobs, which can be done more or less independently from the study progress:
- event management
- sponsor management and acquisition
- IT-administration
- public relations/marketing
- board (team leader, member administration, project management, financial planning, purchasing department)
