Alum Gives Engineering Grant for Racecar Project

A $10,000 grant was recently given for the Formula SAE racecar project, sponsored by Oral Roberts University's Engineering Department, from alum Mike Noack and his wife, Sonein.  So far, this is the largest individual grant given toward the Formula SAE project.

Formula SAE is a premier and global student design competition organized by the International Society of Automotive Engineers. Teams are exclusively comprised of students who must design, build and race their formula-style racecar.

Aside from racing, Formula SAE teams recruit students to help with marketing, sponsor relations, management skills and students with engineering skills to be involved with racing.
