Purdue Baja SAE

“Baja SAE consists of three regional competitions that simulate real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges. Engineering students are tasked to design and build an off-road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain and sometimes even water.

The object of the competition is to provide SAE student members with a challenging project that involves the planning and manufacturing tasks found when introducing a new product to the consumer industrial market. Teams compete against one another to have their design accepted for manufacture by a fictitious firm. Students must function as a team to not only design, build, test, promote, and race a vehicle within the limits of the rules, but also to generate financial support for their project and manage their educational priorities.”

-SAE International

At Purdue, Baja SAE means a year spent designing, building, testing, and finally racing an off-road vehicle. The competition give us the opportunity to apply the concepts we have learned in class to a real-world problem. We are exposed to many design techniques, like CAD and FEA. We must also excel in teamwork, planning, and advertising.

In the end, all the hard work pays off when we race a machine we can be proud of against other universities from around the world.
