The Aerodynamic and Composites team is the ones behind the shape of the whole car, optimized in CFD simulations. Besides, also the undertray, front wings, rear wings and side pods are designed and then manufactured by this team. Using carbon fiber and fiberglass as the most common materials.

Aerodynamic and Composites have recently looked for the following skills and/or profiles:

  • Master’s student with experience in working with composites manufacturing (Bachelor’s students can apply as well, but is not prioritized). 
  • Master’s student with experience in CFD-softwares (Bachelor’s students can apply as well, but is not prioritized).

Business realtions involves the management of the team as well as preparing for the static events of the Formula Student competition. The static events consist of a business plan of the project, a cost documentation and a design documentation of the car. Furthermore, this team is in charge of the external relations with sponsors and potential partners. 

There are currently no vacancies within Business Relations. 

The chassis group focuses on the design, manufacturing, and development of our lightweight carbon-fibre chassis/monocoque and battery container as well as finding efficient cooling solutions for the car’s motors, inverters and battery. The subgroup is also responsible for ensuring seamless integration and synergy between all projects mounted to the car as well as studying various engineering disciplines to help the team pass tests and qualify for competitions.

Chassis have recently looked for the following skills and/or profiles:
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s student with experience in:
    • CFD (sound knowledge of pre- and post-processing)
    • Simulink and/or control theory
    • CAD
    • Some hands-on experience with a practical project
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s student with experience in:
    • Working with carbon fibre and/or fiberglass
    • CAD software, good/advanced skills
    • FEM (preferably on composite laminates)
    • Knowledge about laminate theory is meritorious
The Driverless team is responsible from the driverless software development and deployment, enabling our car to run autonomously in competitions. The team is uniquely split into four separate groups: Software Development, Perception, Navigation, and Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM).

Driverless have recently looked for the following skills and/or profiles:
 
  • Basic programming skills
    • Either python or C++
Merited if you have worked with either of the following before:
  • ROS
  • Docker
  • Unit testing and system deployment
    • Using docker
  • Control systems
    • Path planning algorithms (RRT for instance)
  • SLAM
    • GraphSLAM or FastSLAM
  •  

The Marketing team has a close connection to our partners and students at KTH. The main goal is to spread the word about Formula Student, our team at KTH and make sure we maintain the relationship with our partners.

There are currently no vacancies within Marketing. 

The mechanical Design team is responsible for all the mechanical components in the car. The team works with the whole process from concept to manufacturing. The components are designed using CAD- and FEA-Software and manufactured using both manual and computer controlled machines.

Mechanical Design have recently looked the following skills and/or profiles:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s Student with interest in manufacturing. 

The Powertrain and Electronics team is working with the high voltage systems like electrical motors, inverters and a high voltage battery built by the team. And the low voltage systems like all sensors on the car, the dashboard, the wiring, safety circuits and much more.

Powertrain and Electronics have recently looked for the following skills and/or profiles:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s student having experience working with an electric drive train;
    • including simulations, testing and assembling.
  • Bachelor’s student with knowlegde about mechanical design and interests in electronics (experience is not required). 

The Vehicle Dynamics team is responsible for three segments -the suspension design, the development of control systems(traction control, torque vectoring and regenerative braking) and tuning the vehicle for increased performance by testing it on the track.

Vehicle Dynamics have recently looked for the following skills and/or profiles:

  • First- or second-year bachelor’s student who is expected to stay in the team for more than two years.
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s student having experience with control systems and applications.
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s student who has previously been a member of any FS/Baja team and has a strong understanding of vehicle dynamics.
