At UGRacing, we aren’t just a team that builds a car: we are the foremost opportunity at the University of Glasgow for students to gain industry-style experience, and so are directly shaping the engineers of the future. We are proud of our holistic approach and the key qualities we strive to bring to every project: innovation, professionalism and passion.
Innovation is key to our competitive edge. Whether it be saving every gram of weight to create the best performing race car possible, incorporating the latest manufacturing techniques to get more work done quicker or coming up with an enterprising business pitch, pushing the boundaries of every aspect of the team is a substantial part of our DNA.
Professionalism is essential to our work. We aim to hold ourselves to industry standards and approach every task with due diligence, expertise and determination. The professional abilities displayed by our members – such as teamwork, attentiveness, self-motivation, adaptability to new challenges and communication skills – ensures UGRacing consistently performs at the highest level and prepares our members with the skills needed for the start of their careers.
Passion drives all that we do. We’re enthusiastic about motorsport, engineering, competition, working together, inclusivity, inspiring others to study STEM subjects and understanding how new technology can make automobiles more environmentally friendly. It is our common interests and our sense of comradery that motivates our team to work tirelessly each year and have fun while doing it.
