Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) is a 60-strong student organisation that designs and builds solar powered vehicles to compete in the biennial World Solar Challenge.

We are a not-for-profit organisation that is mainly funded through corporate sponsorship and private support. Since our founding in 2007, we have been the UK’s number one for solar vehicle development and are leading the way to prove how much UK student teams are capable of. We believe that through the promotion of high-level student engineering projects, the UK can produce the best engineers in the world.

Our team mission is to inspire as well as innovate. Through exploring new areas of ultra-efficient vehicle technology, we aim to challenge the accepted concept for solar vehicles with our unique design. In addition we provide students at the University of Cambridge with a learning platform for applied engineering, strategic planning and leadership in the real world. 

We are very keen to encourage students to follow a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) career path. This leads us to undertake many outreach programmes, both nationally and internationally. Through public events and school visits, we show young students how exciting and varied a career in a STEM subject can be.

Whilst the University retains the discretion to allocate the funds for a broader purpose, it fully intends to apply the funds in accordance with your wishes wherever possible. An expression of wishes shall not give rise to a trust or other legally-binding obligation. The University maintains a catalogue of Registered Clubs and Societies (including Sports Clubs). The University of Cambridge is an exempt charity subject to regulation by the Office for Students (OfS) under the Charities Act 2011, and therefore does not have a Charity registration number.
