Formula Student team UTM

About Us

We are FS Team UTM - a group of students of Technical University of Moldova, which started its activity in 2022. We are the first in the Republic of Moldova who set ourselves the goal of competing with teams of students from other countries in the International Formula Student engineering competition, in which is necessary not only to design, but also to build a race car following a strict set of rules. In summer, taking part in the competition stages, we will check how fast and correctly the car is built. By participating, we represent the TUM, our partners, the Republic of Moldova and ourselves as specialists. The efficiency of the cooperation of our departments gives us the opportunity to develop our skills from different perspectives. Each student is valued by the oppurtunity to offer solutions and ideas in order to increase the competitiveness of the team in solving problems of engineering, assembly, design, electronics, information technology and management.



The Formula Student is an international design competition for students. The first Formula Student event took place in 1981 in the United States, featuring only combustion cars. Currently, over 800 university teams take part in 14 worldwide competitions, showcasing their self-designed and self-built combustion, electric, and/or driverless race cars.
Students are given free hand in creating concepts for their respective racecars. The regulations, published every year, primarily set safety standards for the competing vehicles. The introduction of the electric category in 2010, and the driverless category in 2016, pushed the students’ innovations to be relevant for the future of transport.

Unlike other racing series, having the fastest car does not guarantee victory in the Formula Student. Teams are evaluated in eight events; five of which are dynamic and three static. Racing performance, deep understanding of engineering theory, and cost-related presentations are the focus of the Formula Student. Presentations are evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of experts from motorsport, automotive, and logistical industries.
Statics 325 points
At the Cost event the expenses for the car are presented. Each component has a price, as written in the rules. The production of 1000 cars serves as a calculation basis
Cost and Manufacturing (100 Points):

At the Engineering Design Event the construction details are presented. A judging Team consisting of engineering experts discusses each solution for every details of the car.
