Cooper Motorsports was formed in 1994 when Cooper Union students competed in the SAE Baja series. In 2004, an intrepid group of four mechanical engineering students started development of a racecar for the Formula SAE competition and a new team was born.
The competition requires students to design, build, test, and race a real race car. Since 2006, the team has built 4 open-cockpit formula-style race vehicles showcasing everything from mechanical design to electronic control systems.
Despite its limited resources, the team continues to thrive. Since its birth, the project has grown into an interdisciplinary effort between dozens of students of different majors within Cooper Union striving for excellence in every aspect of engineering design.
