Axalta offers paint and coatings to the students at select schools around the world for the Formula SAE Collegiate Design Series (CDS) competitions making their cars brilliant in appearance, corrosion resistant and more aerodynamic.
SAE International's Collegiate Design Series (CDS) competitions take students beyond textbook theory by enabling them to design, build, and test the performance of a real vehicle and then compete with other students from around the globe. All CDS competitions prepare undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of disciplines for future employment in mobility-related industries by challenging them with a hands-on, team engineering experience that also requires budgeting, communication and collaboration, project management, and resource management skills.
