Because racecar, that's why
We are the Formula Student team from Instituto Superior Técnico.
Our mission is to develop prototypes to participate in international Formula Student competitions, an event created for the next generation of engineers. We are working with the goal of developing a new prototype: The FST 12. This is the team's 9th 100% electrical car and the 3rd autonomous car.
WHAT WE DO
Design, build and test Formula type cars, in order to compete
We compete internationally in the Formula Student competitions, representing Portugal before other universities and companies around the world. As of now, we've developed 11 prototypes of which the first three were combustion and the remaining electric. On the last season, we developed FST 11, our newest prototype, a vehicle with the capacity to compete in both autonomous and eletric classes.

We work with tight timescales to get the cars built and ready for the competitions.
The companies’ involvement as sponsors or in the Formula Student competitions allows us to have a closer relationship between employers and future engineers, enabling experience and knowledge sharing.
Moreover, we get to develop greatly appreciated skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, and the importance of commitment while still having a blast.
