Formatted abstract
The Formula Student Automotive Engineering . Australasia (FSAE]A) is the Australian faction of well renowned international automotive student competition. It involves designing, building and racing a small single]seated, open]wheeled, combustion or electric formula car. The high complexity of designing a race car makes ensuring the symbiotic integration of all race car aspects and components extremely involved and complex. This thesis investigates the use of Systems Engineering Techniques and tools to aid in determining an affective design process methodology. This process will be compatible with the 2013 Formula SAE Rules.

The proposed design methodology is centred on techniques of systems engineering in order to improve the design process from previous UQR generations. In order to achieve this, focus was given to creating a set of instructions that set clear team expectations, developing component design with regard to the full assembly, creating validation of design concept tools, and constant iterative evaluation techniques of design.
