Baja SAE consists of three regional competitions that simulate real-world engineering design projects.

Engineering students are tasked to design and build an off-road vehicle that will sustain severe punishment of rough terrain and sometimes even water.

All vehicles are powered by a ten-horsepower Intek Model 20 engine donated by Briggs & Stratton.
Baja SAE is part of the Collegiate Design Series which is run by SAE International.
