Autocross 2016

The University of Texas at Arlington Formula SAE Racecar Team Presents

The 3rd Annual Fall Autocross and Open House

Saturday, October 14
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

FSAE Autocross

UTA’s Fall Autocross is an exciting event where FSAE teams from universities around the country come to compete and display racecars that they built from scratch. This event will allow your students the opportunity to experience the FSAE program, watch cars race, and interact with engineering majors from across the nation free of charge.

This year’s Fall Autocross is incorporated in the UTA Maverick Experience, a preview day for prospective students to get a close-up look at what UTA has to offer that morning as well.

You can attend as a high school student or a transfer student and the event includes presentations on admission, financial aid, scholarships, and an overview of each academic college. You can also take a campus tour and view residence halls and apartments. You will also meet new people at our Academic and Student Life Fair as you learn about student life and meet representatives from the academic departments. You'll also be able to apply for admission, turn in documents, check status, and more at our Satellite Admissions Office. Lunch is provided by UTA for you and your guests.

UTA’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department hosts the Autocross and STEM students in attendance will have the opportunity to see design work up close. They will also be able to discuss ideas with engineers and ask questions to learn more about the engineering processes that went into the cars. Fall Autocross is a unique and special opportunity for students to become more involved and excited about STEM.
