Queen Mary Formula Student is a student-run society filled with members from very different academic backgrounds with Engineering students working alongside peers from Film and Finance programmes. Aqil Hussain, an Aerospace Engineering student and the team project manager believes this is part of the team's strength, saying 'With the diversity that comes from the exceptional academic backgrounds of both our engineering and non-engineering students, we are able to promote innovation within our team.'
