About Us

Durham University Electric Motorsport (DUEM) are the UK’s longest running solar car team. Founded in 2002, we have always pushed the boundaries of technological innovation to the limit. The 50-strong team is entirely run and led by students outside of academically rigorous degrees, all of whom are incredibly future focused.

We believe that inclusion inspires innovation and have always had students from a diverse academic background, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level: from engineering, to physics, history, mathematics, biology, economics, modern languages, marketing and more.

This website gives you an insight into our past and a glimpse into our future; a future in which we continue to build upon our strong heritage and continue to showcase, educate and inspire.

We hope you will be a part of it
