The BAJA organization operates under the Society of Automotive Engineers. The name ‘Baja’ originates from one of the most intense races in the world, where vehicles are driven across the harsh terrain of the desert for thousands of miles. The BAJA organization takes the engineering principles used in that large-scale race and applies them to a collegiate level size competition. This student-led organization dares students from across the globe to design, build, test, and race a four-wheel drive buggy completely from scratch.
The mission of Baylor Baja is not all about vehicle racing. The main objective is to provide Baylor engineering students the opportunity to get experience in the real world application of mechanical and electrical systems outside of the classroom. Engineering students gain priceless, hands-on experience in both design and fabrication, all while learning how independent systems can come together to work in harmony. We are dedicated to honing the skills of the engineering students at Baylor University and preparing them for their future careers in the engineering industry. Building an off-road performance vehicle is the perfect way to do so.
This achievement can only be accomplished through the generous financial contributions from the individuals, sponsors, and partners of Baylor Baja. The financial aid goes toward the tools and materials to build the physical product; the competition fee; the travel costs for the team to race in competitions. The competitions hosted by the internationally recognized Society of Automotive Engineers can only be participated in through this additional financial support.
Please consider supporting Baylor Baja on their mission to race in the Oregon competition by June of 2023. Thank you!
