Missouri S&T Solar Car

The Missouri S&T Solar Car Student Design Team is a student run organization which promotes multidisciplinary work between engineering and non-engineering related fields, giving students the experience of design and going into competition.

Our goal is to design, build, and race an innovative and winning Solar Electric vehicle. Through collaborative work, our forty student members and four faculty advisors combine new technologies and engineering principles to produce a vehicle that is both efficient and reliable in order to participate in national and world competitions.

Looking to the Future

With a new build cycle and new team members, our main focus this year will be to design a new vehicle that will be competitive in future events.

After not competing for three years, the team managed to get Solar Miner VIII in working condition and placed seventh in Formula Sun Grand Prix 2014.

We face a new challenge of designing a new car that is completely different from its predecessors and creating a legacy for years to come for new members of the team.


The team is comprised into four sub teams that are specialized in order for the team to operate smoothly; including the Mechanical, Electrical, Race Logistics, and Business sub teams.

We Need Your Support!

Without the support of our sponsors and the Student Design Center, we would not be able to move forward as a team and create a new vehicle that would provide our team members with the experience they need for the future. Thank you!
