We are delighted to announce that Morgan McKinley have officially endorsed the professionalism and skill of UCDFS members. In the endorsement below, hear John Cunningham, talk about what being part of a project like this means.
“UCD Formula Student is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn and develop industry-related and real-world-applicable skills that are often underdeveloped from lecture-based learning alone. The mixture of interdisciplinary collaboration, technical skills required for design, and manual skills applied during manufacturing requires team members to be very versatile in their work. A project as wide-ranging as Formula Students poses many challenges to students, requiring them to show compromise, innovation and quite often – grit.
Bringing a project such as a formula-style race car from concept to actualisation is a mammoth task, and their success is a testament to their professionalism, ambition, and competency. In contrast to most other colleges in the competition, UCDFS is completely voluntary and runs in the students’ spare time, demonstrating their drive and commitment.
We wish the team the best of luck in the season ahead, and we at Morgan McKinley are delighted to endorse a project like this.“
