Businesses Team

Our dedicated business team aims to get Durham University Solar Car's name out to as many people as possible through education at schools and publicity at international events so that the engineers can focus on what they do best.


The team is made up of over 50 of some of the world's brightest young engineers, many of which are at undergraduate level of study at Durham University. Some of our members go on to work with our partners after study.

Durham University

We work closely with the University and Department of Engineering in order to develop the best solar car we can. Without their support, it simply wouldn't be possible.

Social Media Reach

Our strong social media presence spans across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn aiding our reach to announce build progress, new partners and results. Our marketing team ensures a high level of thought goes into all posts.

International Events

We have attended countless events both nationally and internationally. Our cutting edge technology has been featured at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Formula E-Prixs, and United Nations Climate Summits.
