Management

 

The management facilitates the work of the other subteams. This involves subjects such as team spirit, communication, planning and contact with external parties. The key tasks are to steer the team away from any potential pitfalls and to ensure that the year planning is complied with. The management has the biggest variety in tasks and also carries the responsibility for the end results of the team. A management position is fulltime only.

 

Communication

While the technical teams are working hard on the superbike, there is another part of the team that mostly focuses on the contact to the outside world. This is the communication team. This subteam tells our story to companies and other interested parties. 


Powertrain

 

The powertrain sub-team is responsible for the delivery of a lot of brute power to the superbike’s rear wheel. Many of the electronic systems on our bikes have been developed by our own engineers to fit our requirements and are unique to our superbike. As a powertrain member, your days will be filled with a large variety of tasks, and you will specialize and be responsible for specific aspects of the superbike. You can read about the different functions in the team in the following sections.

Powertrain members of the previous year’s originate from various studies; Electrical Engineering, Technical Computer Science, Creative Technology, Advanced Technology, Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering. What is most important when applying for the powertrain sub-team, is that you have an affinity with electronics, and can add to the team in one of the bike’s powertrain aspects.

 

 

 

Chassis

 

The chassis subteam is responsible for all the mechanical components in the superbikes, both static and dynamic. This includes structural parts like the frame, subframe and swingarm, but also moving components e.g. the electric motor, transmission and wheels. These components come together to form the backbone of a motorcycle, housing all the powertrain components and allowing the immense forces produced by the motor to be safely transferred to the track’s surface, resulting in the high-speed action Electric Superbike Twente is known for.
