Frequently asked questions

What are the requirements for applying?

No prior knowledge is required! Our only requirement is that you are a student at NTNU.

I’m not sure I’m qualified?

We get this question all the time, and we can understand the project might look intimidating from the outside. Truth is, none of us has ever built a race car before we joined Revolve NTNU. By breaking up a very complex task into smaller and well defined areas of responsibility, we are able to achieve great results. For example, we have one person whose sole responsibility is the brake system. Having specialized tasks allows you to quickly get up to speed and learn what you need to know. You’ll be an expert in no time!

What are you looking for in a candidate?

We are mainly looking for motivation. If you are motivated and willing to put down the time required you will succeed!

What positions can I apply for?

Have a look at our team page to see what different positions we have this year. You apply to one or more groups of your interest, and we will help you determine what you will work on.

What non-engineering positions can I apply for?

There are many aspects to the project. Our marketing group help finance and market the project. Our marketing group needs a sponsor manager, PR manager, event manager, graphic designer, website manager, photography and video and more. We also have a finance manager and cost event manager.

I’m a first year student. Can I still apply?

Yes, we do have some first year students in the team. We help each other out and learn fast. Many of our members stay with the team for several years, and first and second years students are important for continuation and knowledge transfer between the teams.

If I join, how much time should I expect to spend on Revolve NTNU?

We tell our members to expect to use on average 20 hours a week on the project. The work load will vary, depending on your tasks and how the project is progressing. We find that this is rarely an issue, you will love what you do!

How does Revolve NTNU combine with my studies?

Most of our members study full time while being members of Revolve NTNU. However, the project is time consuming, so you will have to be structured to make it work. The exam period is taken into consideration and the work load is usually lower around exams. If you are an engineering student, our experience is that you will learn more from your work at Revolve NTNU than from class!

Can I apply to be a driver?

Our drivers are recruited internally, so you will have to apply for a position in the team first! We usually have five drivers, who in addition to their usual task in the project, does go kart and simulator training throughout the year.
