The SAE Mini Baja Project is an international, collegiate competition that requires students design, build, and race an off-road vehicle. SAE gives specific guidelines that each team must follow in order to compete. Competition results are based on the design, cost, and performance of each vehicle. Teams are entirely student based with the exception of a faculty advisor.
The Baja project expands every team member's understanding of engineering more than any classroom experience can. It gives engineering students the full circle engineering process: design, manufacture, test, and re-design. This real-life experience prepares us for our futures in the engineering field while allowing us to explore our interests.
