Baja SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers)
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. 

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.

All vehicles are powered by a 10-horsepower Intek Model 20 Briggs & Stratton engine. Use of the same engine by all the teams creates a more challenging engineering design test. In order to be competitive, it is crucial to design the lightest weight car possible, while maintaining the necessary strength to endure the brutal challenges faced at competition.
