Purdue Electric Racing is an engineering and business student organization dedicated to designing, building, and racing an electric formula car. Entirely operated by students, our group provides Boilermakers with hands-on experience and access to the basics of electric vehicle development. Every year, we compete against 60 other teams from universities across the globe in events organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). 

Designing an electric car from scratch and finding well-made equipment to build one with can be expensive tasks, which is why we are asking for your support!

Student members of Purdue Electric Racing.



Not only will your gift help us fine-tune our design and dominate the coming competition, but also support the future careers of our members by providing them with valuable networking opportunities. Donations will help continue to improve the reliability of our vehicle and will go toward purchasing equipment, hardware, and competition necessities. 

Your support ensures that our members, the future innovators in the field of electric vehicle technology, have the necessary funds to:

  1. Acquire essential equipment for hands-on learning.
  2. Purchase high-quality hardware for precise assembly.
  3. Obtain off-the-shelf vehicle components, optimizing the performance of our electric car.
  4. Cover competition needs, including presentation materials, track equipment etc. enabling us to compete effectively on a global stage.

By supporting Purdue Electric Racing, you are not just investing in a student organization – you are fostering a culture of innovation, learning, and excellence. Join us in shaping the future of electric vehicle technology and empowering the next generation of engineers!
