MSU Baja SAE Team

This campaign ended on June 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Missouri State University by clicking here!

The success of Missouri State's Baja SAE Team is directly related to the generous donations we receive. Baja SAE is a great learning opportunity for aspiring engineers. Baja provides hands-on engineering experience and knowledge that cannot be gained in a typical classroom setting. Team members agree that participating in the project has demonstrated to us the applications of skills acquired in classes, taught us to design with manufacturing in mind, and forced us to practice goal-setting, leadership, teamwork, budgeting, and project management. This would all be impossible without the financial support of the MSU College of Business, Technology and Construction Management Department, and the many companies who sponsored us. We hope to bring honor and recognition of excellence to both the sponsors and the MSU Baja SAE Team.

Baja SAETM consists of competitions that stimulate 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. Each team’s goal is to design and build a single-seat, all-terrain, sporting vehicle whose structure contains the driver. The vehicle is to be a prototype of a reliable, maintainable, ergonomic, and economic production vehicle that serves as recreational user market

The object of the competition is to provide SAE student members with a challenging project that involves the design, planning and manufacturing tasks found when introducing a new product to the consumer industrial market. Teams compete against one another to have their design accepted for manufacture by a fictitious firm. Students must function as a team to design, build, test, promote, and race a vehicle within the limits of the rules.

A ten-horsepower Intek Model 19 engine provided by Briggs & Stratton Corporation powers all vehicles. For over forty years, the generosity of Briggs & Stratton has enabled SAE to provide each team with a dependable engine. Use of the same engine by all teams creates a more challenging engineering design competition.
