Student Website: http://uaa.collegiatelink.net/organization/UAA_seawolfmotorsports
Club Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/UAABaja
Faculty Advisor: Prof. Todd Petersen
Baja SAE®consists of 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 design, 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.
