About BAJA Competetion:
Baja SAE INDIA is a national level competition that simulates real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges. Engineering students are tasked to design, build, test and race a single-seated off-road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain at Pithampur in February 2013.
The objective 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 in the consumer market. Students design the Baja car as if it is a prototype for a company, so cost, appearance, reliability, and performance all become key factors in judging. Rule guidelines place restrictions on the engine and frame, testing the imagination, knowledge, and creativity of the students.
The competition is divided in three stages:
