The Formula Student "E-Agle Trento Racing Team" is an
inter-departmental university racing team, composed entirely of
students from the University of Trento.
It was founded in the summer of 2016, on the initiative of Professor
Paolo Bosetti, and right from the start the project aroused great
interest and enthusiasm among the University's classrooms, registering
a large number of applications in just a few days. To date, the team
counts more than 90 male and female students, attending as many as 7
different departments, interested in the automotive sector and united
by a single ambitious goal: to build a single-seater open-wheel car,
Formula 1 style, to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative
solutions made possible only by electric propulsion.
From its founding to the present, the team has grown primarily because
of its core value: to design and manufacture as many components
in-house as possible. In this way it embodies the founding principle
of Formula Student, which aims to train the best engineers using the
method of learning by doing.

How we operate
Formula Student is a competition that was created with the aim of
spurring students to get involved, in the design and production of a
racing car. From its founding to the present, the team has set itself
the goal of designing and manufacturing as many components as possible
in person, in line with the founding principle of Formula Student,
which aims to train the best engineers with the method of learning by
doing, learning by doing.
We pride ourselves on being able to produce more than 90 percent of
our vehicle components in our laboratories.
Our team is organized according to the model of a real company. We are
divided into 7 interdisciplinary subgroups: Dynamics and Modelling,
Electronics, Software, Mechanics, Driverless, Management and Public
Relations. All groups work in synergy, within the spaces provided by
We make most of the parts for our vehicles in our workshops
Formula Student is an engineering design competition reserved for the
student community and offered internationally by the Society of
Automotive Engineers (hence the acronym SAE).
The initiative, which began in 1981, involves the design and
production of a racing vehicle. It is an experience that gives the
opportunity to move from theory to practice, to use what has been
learned about automotive in classes and books to build the
best-performing "bolide" with team spirit, enthusiasm and creativity.
On this particular circuit you are evaluated on a series of tests for
design quality and engineering efficiency.
Formula Student is an international competition among teams of college
students. This project consists of the production of a racing car,
following all steps in the supply chain (design, modeling, testing and
use). The vehicle must meet strict regulations, regarding technical
requirements, which influence the choices made during the design. We
rely on the official regulations of FSG.
Every year Formula Student events are held in different parts of the
world where a committee evaluates the development and environmental
impact of the design. Then, the vehicle's efficiency and power are
tested in a series of dynamic track tests.
