SAE BAJA
It is a college competition 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.
The SAE Baja competition involves college students
from around the world competing against each other in
many different areas. Some of the categories are;
design, cost, speed, power, suspension, and durability.
Baja Members are required to submit University level design
and cost reports during the fabrication of the vehicle. These
reports as well as the finished vehicle will spend several
hours at safety inspections and evaluations, where areas
such as roll cage design, brake design, suspension
geometry, cost and ergonomics are highly scrutinized by a
panel
of project Engineers.
