The MotoStudent International Competition is a challenge between University Student teams among all over the world.

The goal for students is to apply all the knowledge acquired during their university studies in a real industrial project, by designing, developing and manufacturing a real racing motorbike prototype, which will be evaluated and tested in MotorLand Aragón FIM Circuit (Spain). The final event takes place every two years. The next event will be on autumn 2020.

MotoStudent itself represents a challenge to the students, which have to prove their creativity and innovation skills to directly apply their engineering abilities against other teams from universities all over the world during a period of three semesters.

The teams are asked to play the role of a motorbike firm. Therefore the challenge is not only an engineering based project if not a business model as well.

In the MS1 phase the projects will be judged from the industrial point of view as a business project model, evaluating aspects such as: cost, design, innovation, industrialization, engineering design, presentation, etc.

Prior to entering the MS2 phase, the motorbikes will be tested in order to determine their safety and functionality, through various static and dynamic events including: technical inspection, brake testing, various performance trials, endurance and dynamic behavior. The dynamic events are scored to determine how well the motorbike performs. The MS2 phase will end up with a final race in the MotorLand Aragón Circuit.
