Zuyd Hogeschool will develop and built a race car with support of 25 business partners to participate in the international race ‘Formula Student’ in July 2017.
Project manager Rob van Loevezijn thinks it is a great opportunity to see students in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, ICT and technical business administration work together on parts of the race car. Van Loevezijn: “The students have to work together with several companies and will deliver quality and extraordinary product. Besides technical aspects they learn to handle deadlines, working together in different disciplines, maintain agreements and take responsibilities. Competences which they will need in their professions later. Also the students in Communication and Multimedia Design van Zuyd Hogeschool will work on Formula Student: they will take care of marketing, communication and branding.”
Tractus3D provides a Tractus3D T3000 printer to print several parts of the car. It is not even our biggest printer but the printvolume is already big enough to print parts like the driver compartment. It is installed at Zuyd Hogeschool so all students can follow the progress in building the car. When it is ready they have to appoint the right racing driver and win the race!
Updates of this project will follow later on.
