The CURE (Cooperative University Racecar Engineering) project began in 2011 with a feasibility study of the Project Engineering course. The English term CURE stands for healing and is therefore also seen for the change from conventional mobility based on fossil fuels to e-mobility without CO2 emissions.
Today, CURE Mannheim eV is a cross-curriculum project from the fields of technology and business at the DHBW Mannheim, which is supported by over 70 students. The team is also supported by graduates, lecturers and partners from business and industry.
The team works together every year to develop and build an electric racing car and to market the project. The team is continuously developing, also benefits from the know-how of the professional partners and thus expands their knowledge. With the built racing car, CURE takes part in the Formula Student events in Europe. The Formula Student is an international design competition with the goal that teams from all over the world can take part with their racing cars, develop further and compete and exchange ideas with each other.
Thanks to the individual background of each student, the team has a large network of national, but also international and above all companies from the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. CURE connects universities and companies, theory with practice, and its agility creates the perfect platform for innovations. CURE works together on the technology for the future with the specialists and managers of tomorrow.
