Student Led Projects

-- Student Outreach Projects --

The student projects team participate in outreach and public engagement to help inspire the next generation of engineers and to highlight the research taking place at WMG with the High Value Manufacturing Catapult on cleaner transport, digital technologies, sustainable materials and manufacturing and supply chain.

WMG Formula Student.Formula Student

We are a cross-disciplinary team of tenacious engineers fixed on one goal: producing a high-performance, single-seat racing vehicle worthy of the Silverstone Circuit, and other iconic circuits worldwide. We are Warwick Racing, the University of Warwick’s Formula Student Team. Our structure consists of a team who carry out the construction of projects and business activities alongside their degrees, and an academic team responsible for designing future projects as an integral part of their Master’s accreditation.

WMG Rail TeamRail Team

Warwick Rail Challenge is a fourth year project to create a fifth scale locomotive to compete in the IMechE Railway Challenge. The team designs and manufactures a miniature railway locomotive in accordance with a set of strict rules and a detailed technical specification.

Warwick Mobile Robotic (WMR).Warwick Mobile Robotic (WMR)

Warwick Mobile Robotics (WMR) is an on-going group research project carried out by a team of Master’s level engineering students at the University of Warwick. This project is jointly run by the School of Engineering and WMG. Since 2008, WMR research teams have been helping to make advances in robotic systems in the Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) field. USAR robots are designed to locate survivors in hazardous environments, such as earthquake disaster zones, thus removing emergency service personnel from danger. The overarching project goal is to design and manufacture a fully functioning USAR robot with the capabilities to be able to compete in international Search and Rescue competitions. WMR is supported by many sponsors including: Mouser, Maxon, Exide Technologies, HVM Catapult and IMFM GRP.

WMG Warwick Moto. Warwick Moto

Warwick Moto is a student racing team which aims to develop, build and race an electric superbike. The long-term objective is to compete with a podium qualifying time at the Isle of Man TT 2022.

WMG Warwick Sub. Warwick Sub

The ‘Warwick Human-Powered Submarine’ Team (‘Warwick Sub’) is a project based around the requirements of the bi-annual US-based International Submarine Race (ISR) competition and its European equivalent (eISR), which runs at Gosport in the UK in alternate years. Teams of students design, build and race submarines for which all propulsive power has to be produced by the SCUBA-equipped pilot. The competing Warwick team each year consists of fourth-year MEng students undertaking their final-year Group Project but they are supported by a number of third-year Individual Project students as well as a host of technical staff, researchers and academics from the University and industrial sponsors.
