Thank you for your interest! Our 2019 - 2020 recruitment season has officially come to an end. Keep an eye out on this page for future updates!
Vehicle Mechanics in charge of both the design and manufacture
of key external and internal structural parts such as:
Vehicle Aerodynamic Outer Shell
Safety features: Harness, Firewall & Roll Bar
Urban Shell Design
Designing a new Urban vehicle aerodynamic shell that has very low drag and is structurally rigid
.Incorporates vehicle aerodynamics, rapid prototyping and verification tests. Prototyping and
verification tests include wind tunnel model testing and fluid dynamics simulations using STAR-CCM.
Comprehensive, ground up steering system redesign. Must account for wheel alignment, driver
accomodation, and geometry constraints imposed by the shell and chassis.
Due to a new rule for the Shell Eco-Marathon competition, a new foot-actuated brake system must be
implemented for our Prototype vehicle. The project will focus on creating a system that complies with
competition rules, is lightweight, and the driver can easily use.
Composite Roll Bar
This year we will be designing a new rollbar for our Prototype vehicle that will be made from composite
material. If a feasible design is developed, then the rollbar will be manufactured. If not found
feasible, the rollbar will instead be made from another type of material (eg. aluminum) with a different
New Honeycomb Chassis
Designing a new lightweight chassis for a Prototype vehicle using composite material such as carbon
fiber and Nomex honeycomb. Includes physical and virtual testing such as destructive stress tests and
The Electrical Division is responsible for designing the
electric components of the vehicles and validation testing of
all required electrical systems. The main divisional goal for
this year is to complete the conversion of the Urban Concept
Vehicle to be a battery electric vehicle and to get the
electrical systems of the car into race condition.
Our internal components are mounted on custom PCBs, thus we're always looking to improve and refactor.
To improve the efficiency of the car, we are always looking to reduce its weight. One of the ways we are
looking to achieve this is to replace the current starter motor on the Prototype Vehicle with a smaller
(lighter) one. Members completing this project will need to work closely with the Powertrain team. If
you have experience testing, characterizing, or designing motors, this project is for you.
Designing a robust telemetry system in order to know the state of the car by publishing real time data
from all the sensors within the vehicle to the cloud to be viewed from anywhere. This will allow data
driven decisions to be made for tuning, and increace performace and reliability.
Powertrain is responsible for the creation and transmission of
power to propel of our vehicles. This includes the design and
optimization of an internal combustion engine, speccing motors,
and constructing efficient drivetrains.
We are planning to design and manufacture four different cam shafts to optimize valve timing and engine
Wideband O2 Sensor
Integrating a wideband O2 sensor into our engine control unit. Be able to precisely control our air to
Drivetrain Weight Savings
Looking into component stuctures to reduce weight where possible.
