Baja SAE is an intercollegiate competition in which teams design and build an off-road vehicle to endure the harsh conditions of rough terrain. Each team is competing to have their design accepted for manufacture by a fictitious firm. Baja SAE brings the next generation of engineers together from across the globe for an invaluable learning experience.
More than 100 university teams from around the world will travel to Rochester, Tennessee, and California to compete in Baja SAE competitions. Teams will compete in static events that judge the functionality and producibility of their cars, as well as dynamic events, culminating in a four-hour endurance race. The vehicles will be pushed to their limits through large jumps, muddy terrain, tight turns, and more.

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors for providing us with materials and support. Without them, we couldn't wouldn't have the resources to build the car or make it to competitions. In addition, the knowledge we've gained from our sponsors has proved instrumental to getting our team to where it is today.
