Since its foundation in 1989, Université Laval’s Formula SAE team has always vowed to offer a stimulating and fun learning environment as well as experiences beneficial for the future of the students.
Innovation and progression are key elements to each member of Université Laval’s team. Indeed, we encourage students to submit their ideas, at any given time, to always obtain better results. Also, help and support from the older and more experienced members allow the transfer of important knowledge to the youngsters so they can fly on their own in the following years.
FormUL always aims to surpass and push back its own limits. Each year, we give ourselves ambitious and attainable goals. They motivate and push us to invest ourselves in continuing our ascension to the summit. It’s by always looking to go further and to renew ourselves that we stand out from the competition and make our place on the international level.
FormUL is way more than a competition. It’s a team of passionate students devoted to the project. They saw in SAE Formula an occasion to put into practice the skills acquired during their classes in a challenging environment.
The members of the SAE Formula team are well aware of the environmental issues and believe that the use of green energy such as electricity is a good way to move forward. The construction of an electric car is an excellent way for ULaval Racing to promote sustainable development.
