Baja SAE 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 and sometimes even water.

Baja SAE is part of SAE International’s Collegiate Design Series (CDS). Other CDS competitions include Aero Design, Clean Snowmobile Challenge, Formula SAE and Supermileage.

The Collegiate Design Series and SAE International’s A World In Motion® curriculum won the National Science Foundation’s prestigious 2008 Public Service Award.
