Since 1981, Longhorn Racing has led the effort to provide real-life engineering education. We have been at the forefront of promoting out-of-the classroom learning, academic and extracurricular achievements, commitment, and leading by example.
Formula SAE was started here at The University of Texas at Austin by one of our faculty advisors, Dr. Ronald Matthews and has now grown into a competition that brings together universities from all across the nation and around the world.
As well as our two Formula SAE teams, we also have a solar vehicle team, Longhorn Racing Solar. Our solar vehicles compete in the Formula Sun Grand Prix and American Solar Challenge.
