WHY SPONSOR US
As a non-profit student team, we are extremely privileged and grateful to have the opportunity to work with our sponsors, who support and enable us to compete in the Formula Student competition. We look forward to providing a mutually beneficial relationship for our Founding Sponsors in our first year of competing, and hope to continue these partnerships for many years to come.
Please get in touch if you are interested in supporting our team, or download the Sponsorship Prospectus below for more information.
Edinburgh Napier University is where our members learn the theoretical background in order to design and build our cars. From day one, ENU has been fully supportive of our project, providing us with space to work in, and the freedom to ‘have a go’. With this kind of backing, it is no surprise that ENU has been steadily climbing the rankings in many of the league tables in addition to receiving awards, demonstrating the University’s dedication to its students.
ENSA is our Students' Association, and they support us with our team logistics, such as transportation and organising events like the Freshers Fair. They provide all Edinburgh Napier students with support & our management team with comprehensive training in leadership skills, and are always a friendly face whenever we have a problem.
Belushi's Bar, in the heart of Edinburgh, supports us with a place where we can come together and hold our regular socials. It has a friendly and vibrant atmosphere where we spend time after our team meetings with delicious food and drinks. As a sports bar, Belushi's also provides us with a great space to watch Formula 1 together, which is always a treat!
Since its founding in 1970, Ansys software has been a vital tool for engineering and innovation. Ansys provides FSTN with licences to their simulation software (which allows us to test out a variety of mechanical problems, including static, dynamic, structural analysis, heat and fluid problems), in addition to onboarding and training programs. By incorporating Ansys into the design process, FSTN's engineers aim to learn an industry-standard tool to further their professional development, whilst elevating the optimisation of our car's components.
Altium is a multinational software company which provides the world’s most popular PCB design programme to some of the world’s best engineers. This gives FSTN complete CAD software with a PCB design system that gives us the resources we need for our biggest design challenges. From our initial schematic capture to our final manufacturing output data, all the tools we need for PCB design are available through Altium Designer.
