At Purdue, Baja Racing means a year spent designing, building, testing, and finally racing an off-road vehicle. The competition gives us the opportunity to apply the concepts we have learned in class to a real-world problem. We are exposed to many design techniques, like CAD, CAM, and FEA. We must also excel in teamwork, planning, and advertising.
In the end, all the hard work pays off when we race a vehicle we can be proud of against other universities from around the world.
Consider Donating to Our Team
As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, elective spending by the university and sponsors has been reduced. Our team is in need of your help this year to continue designing and building our new 4WD car for this competition season. Please consider donating to the team to help support our endeavor in advancing practical and applicable engineering skills for all our members.
