Learn more about the team behind Team Swinburne.


Since the year 2000 Swinburne University of Technology have been home to Team Swinburne, a student led Formula-1 style racing team. With the support of Swinburne faculty we are able to design, build and race a formula style race car to compete every year in the annual Formula-SAE competition.



Our team is home to a diverse range of students, all representing a range of disciplines. An engineering team and business team comprise Team Swinburne on the whole, providing opportunities for a wide array of different disciplines and areas of study to be represented among the team.



Students are encouraged to use Team Swinburne as an opportunity to cultivate the skills from their degrees, gaining industry relevant practice and knowledge in a friendly, encouraging environment.
