WHO WE ARE
The UR Baja SAE team is a student-run, non-profit organization which designs, fabricates, tests, and competes with a single-seater off-road vehicle. From mechanical and biomedical engineering to business majors, our numbers include anyone who is interested in learning design and does not mind getting a “tad” dirty!
Whether you have built a car from scratch or have never touched a tool in your life, we will utilize any skills you have and will teach you designing, manufacturing, and testing methods.
WHAT WE DO
We work part of the summer and throughout the school year designing, manufacturing and testing our car in preparation for national competitions held across the United States. Design is a huge component of what we do. Our team offers students a hands-on approach to engineering as it provides a practical application of classroom-based learning.
Using everything from angle grinders to lathes, we manufacture most of the Baja car ourselves each year.
You have not truly experienced Baja until you have taken part in your first competition! Competition includes dynamic events designed to test your car to the limit as well as presentations in sales, cost, and design. Each competition concludes with a four-hour endurance race, testing all aspects of our car on an off-road track. Competing against 100 national and international teams, UR Baja SAE travels the country, attending competitions in places like Oregon, Kansas, Alabama, and Tennessee
