Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) is a 60 strong student organisation that designs, builds and races solar powered vehicles. Since our founding in 2007, we have become the UK's number 1 solar racing team. We are a not-for-profit organisation that focuses on the areas of technology and education.
We are CUER
Our team mission is to inspire as well as innovate. This leads us to undertake many outreach programs, both nationally and internationally. Through public events and school visits, we show young students how exciting and varied a career in STEM subjects can be.
In addition we provide students at Cambridge University with a learning platform for applied engineering, strategic planning and leadership in the real world.
Through exploring new areas of ultra-efficient vehicle technology, we aim to challenge the accepted concept for solar vehicles with our unique design.
