About AMDA

AMDA is a student group within the Technical University of Darmstadt. We are a group of 20 active members who work together in our free time to design and build an entirnal embustion engine drivin racing car. Our objective is to participate in the Formula Student events with a new car every year.

We are looking for new people to expand our team and to work with us to make a great start in the new season. Please contact us if you are interested to get involved in our activity and would like to get to know our club. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have about our student group. We look forward to meeting you.

How we do it



Wie soll unser diesjähriges Rennauto aufgebaut sein? Gemeinsam überlegen wir uns jährlich ein neues Konzept.

Haben wir unser Grundkonzept erarbeitet, kümmern sich die jeweiligen Bereiche um die Bauteile und Fertigung unseres Fahrzeuges.

Our Team

​Our student group was founded in 2015 and we have now built up the team to 20 members working on competition projects. In August 2018, we took part in our first Formula Student Germany and are now developing new ideas and concepts for our next racing car for the coming year. Our members are split into the functional areas of Electronics, Chassis, Suspension, Engine, Aerodynamics and Organisation. In this way we are able to apply our classroom theory to practical challenges and gain valuable new experience. We are an open and ambitious student group and look forward to welcoming new members. If you have any questions about our group, then please reach out to us or simply drop by for a beer.

Formula Student

The Formula Student is an international competition for teams of students. Self designed and constructed formula cars are battling each other in events around the world. The goal is to figure out the best concepts within the borders of the rules and limited resources. Participating at Formula Student expands the theoretical study contents to practical experience in the fields of designing, construction, testing and project management.
