Baja SAE challenges engineering students to design and build an off-road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain. As in real work situations, our team of future engineers works together to discover and resolve technical challenges in design, test, and manufacturing, as well as business issues. Baja SAE also gives students the first-hand challenge of pursuing their passion while managing real-life demands and priorities. Our team’s goal is to design and build a prototype of an all-weather, rugged, single-seat, off-road recreational vehicle intended for sale to the non-professional weekend off-road enthusiast. With your support, our team will connect with over 3,700 students during the 3 international competitions during the 2019-2020 school year.
Sheet Metal is used in numerous parts of our car. It is also used to train new members in machining. Your contribution will help us train 10 new members or finish a large sheet metal competent like our firewall.
Carbon Fiber is known for extreme lightness and strength; for that reason, it's a great material to use for our car! With each passing year, we're increasing the amount of carbon fiber we use, and this will ensure we can continue doing just that!
We use large bricks of aluminum to machine various components of our car, including our gearbox housing. The costs add up fast! This contribution will ensure we can build our pedals, hubs, uprights, and steering rack!
Our entire frame is built from certified steel tubing to ensure the car's safety. The frame is the building block of our entire car, and without it, we wouldn't exist. This contribution will ensure that we will have a frame and will be able to build a car!
