We are CUER

CUER is the largest student-run engineering project within Cambridge University. We design and build solar-powered electric vehicles to compete against teams from top universities across the planet in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, a gruelling 3000km endurance competition across Australia.  

Our purpose is to serve students across the University by providing the opportunity to work on a multidisciplinary practical project.  We provide students at Cambridge University with a learning platform for applied engineering, strategic planning and leadership in the real world. 

Our alumni are now working in an impressive range of industries including F1, Formula E, Electric Vehicles, multinational engineering companies and finance, many are now running successful startups that they have founded since leaving.

We are currently working on an exciting new vehicle, codenamed "Helia", which represented an exciting new direction for CUER. It will be the most innovative vehicle that the team has ever produced.  More details will be released in our upcoming press release.
