Start Your Engines...Dragon Racing is Off!

Dragon Racing construction at HCC.Image: Students in the engineering lab work on an engine for the college's first-ever Formula One racing car, which is teaching them hands-on automotive and design engineering skills.   

Howard Community College’s Dragon Formula Racing club was established in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped them from designing, building, testing, and eventually racing their own car. 

Students in the Dragon Formula One Racing club learn the basics of automotive engineering and develop an understanding of advanced engineering design tools such as Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics. Working on teams to build the car, students collaborate to ensure success, gaining time management skills through project scheduling and budget management. Although the team is based within the department of engineering and technology, the club is open to all HCC students who share a passion for hands-on engineering and racing.

Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
