College of Engineering Mechanical Baja Competition
SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) International's Collegiate Design Series (CDS) competitions take students beyond textbook theory by enabling them to design, build, and test the performance of a real vehicle and then compete with other students from around the globe in exciting and intense competitions.
All CDS competitions prepare undergraduate and graduate engineering students in a variety of disciplines for future employment in mobility‐related industries by challenging them with a hands‐on, team engineering experience that also requires budgeting, communication, project management, and resource management skills. Students also gain valuable exposure with recruiters from leading companies in the mobility industry to help land their first engineering job after graduation.
In Baja SAE, engineering students are tasked with designing and building a single‐seat, all‐terrain sporting vehicle that is to be a prototype for a reliable, maintainable, ergonomic, and economic production vehicle that serves a recreational user market. The students must function as a team to design, engineer, build, test, promote, and compete with a vehicle within the limits of the rules. The students must also generate financial support for their project and manage their educational priorities.
