Aalto Formula Team ry
Aalto Formula Team ry (AFT) is a student organization for all Aalto University students to join. Our aim is to unite students from different Aalto schools and study programmes to design and build a Formula Student-class electric race car. Our students consists of all the three fields of Aalto; technology, business and arts. This has been our goal right from the start; welcome all of Aalto students regardless of the study programme and year.
Major part of the association activity is the electric race car project. This project hosts a lot of different and interesting duties in the fields of technology, business and arts. While the design and construction of the car is a large part of the project actually a big part of the competitions are a business case with marketing. Through marketing there is also a large need for media; part of the business case and project visibility to outside. We want to be seen and heard in the campus.
AFT was founded in November 2017 and got registered a month later. AFT is also part of the first list of association in the AYY, the Aalto University Student Union.
