The Formula SAE team at ASU is one of two teams awarded the William R. “Bill” Adam Formula SAE Vehicle Development grant by SAE International.
Established in 2004, this grant provides funding to one or more Formula SAE® teams to assist with the development of their vehicles. This grant is given in honor of William R. “Bill” Adam’s contribution to FSAE and his lifelong dedication to mentoring young engineers.
Wade Gyllenhaal, an undergraduate in mechanical engineering, is the team captain of the Formula SAE team at ASU. Under his leadership, team membership has increased to nearly 25 members, up from an average of around five members in the past several years. He is also president of the SAE International chapter at ASU, which has grown to include over 100 student engineers. The Tempe campus club is one of the largest student organizations among the 400+ chapters throughout the world.
SAE International is a global association of more than 128,000 engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries. SAE International’s core competencies are lifelong learning and voluntary consensus standards development. SAE International’s charitable arm is the SAE Foundation, which supports many programs, including A World In Motion® and the Collegiate Design Series.
