Who are we?

e-gnition Hamburg is the Formula Student Team of the TUHH. Every year we take part in an international competition to compete with other teams. Every year we build an electric and an autonomous racing car for the Formula Student and in order to continue making great technological advancements we need dedicated students for our team. We offer you a lot but we also demand a lot from you! Only in this way can we continue to develop and build electric racing cars at the highest level. Do you feel like taking on a new challenge? Then this is the right place for you.


What should you bring with you?

Mainly enthusiasm for automotive engineering and racing. You should be enthusiastic about new technologies and be able to work independently and in a structured way. Especially initiative is a very important factor. If you always need someone to tell you exactly what to do, this is definitely not for you.

For our 1st and 2nd semesters the advice is to start your studies properly first! e-gnition is fun and a great project, but you also have to invest a certain amount of time and work which you then lack during your studies. Therefore we advise you to join us from the third semester on. However, if you feel you have an absolute vocation to work in the racing team right from the start, please let us know and we will clarify further details with you in a personal meeting.
