The University of Trento FSAE Team was founded in June 2016, with the ambitious goal of building a vehicle in less than 12 months. Our logo depicting an eagle was chosen because it is the logo of the city of Trento. The team consists of 60 students, all from the University of Trento.
E-Agle TRT where E stands for electric: our mission is to develop a Formula 1-style open-wheel racing car, thus demonstrating the effectiveness of innovative solutions made possible only by electric propulsion, a field that we believe still has a lot to say in racing. It goes without saying that without a combustion engine we can reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, so one of the objectives of the entire project is to respect the environment as much as possible.
The technical part of the team is made up of students, divided according to their specific skills, who attend courses in Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Information and Communications Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering and Materials and Production Engineering. We also have some students from the Department of Economics and Management who are involved in resource management.
When it comes to the development of the car, we also use the help and advice of our technical sponsors, consisting of local companies.
