Meet the Team
Integrated within the university, we bring students out from a theoretical world into a more practical environment to apply their knowledge and expand their horizons. We are made up of undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines ranging from engineering, computing, business, media & communications.
Meet Our Cars
Driving into a sustainable future.
Our racing cars showcase cutting-edge sustainable engineering and demonstrate the incredible potential of electric vehicle technologies. By designing a car to run on solar power alone, we are driving the changes in vehicle efficiency and new technologies for a low-carbon future.
Constructed from a carbon-nomex composite, the monocoque chassis of our solar car seats custom designed suspension components. We make use of these industry leading materials and techniques to create a race vehicle that is not only light, but strong as well.

Join us for 2017.
Following the success of our first foray, Western Sydney University is now investing in the project and invites private, corporate and government partners to do the same. Financial and in-kind support is welcome.
A range of sponsorship benefits are available. Interested individuals and organisations are invited to share in the success of this opportunity which only comes around every two years. With your help, we can get the Western Sydney University Solar Car on the road again for the 2017 World Solar Challenge.
