Who we are

Olin Electric Motorsports is an undergraduate organization at Olin College focused on educating engineers through the development and manufacture of electric vehicles. We believe that electric vehicles provide an excellent platform for students to pursue mechanical, electrical, computer, and systems engineering in depth. By working together to achieve this in time for competition, members also develop the communication and leadership skills necessary for success as an engineer.

Our mission

Our mission is to build a culture of continuous learning in a welcoming environment for members to deepen engineering knowledge and develop interpersonal skills by designing and building a Formula SAE vehicle to ultimately develop a passion for the competition and the team.

Formula SAE

Formula SAE is one of the world’s most rigorous academic motorsports competitions, with the goal of producing highly skilled undergraduates with direct experience in engineering, organization, and management. Student teams from all over the world design, build, and race small-scale formula-style race cars to directly compete with other universities. Formula SAE encompasses all aspects of car manufacturing, including research, design, construction, testing, developing, marketing, management, and fund raising. Formula SAE teams produce experienced and capable engineers who are ready to turn their skills and passion towards future engineering challenges.
