About US

Mission Statement:

The goal of UW-Stout SAE Baja is to design and construct a vehicle within the SAE International specifications, using the manufacturing skills acquired with emphasis on teamwork in an engineering environment. Team Goal: To have our older team members guide and mentor the newer members, so that old mistakes remain in the past. While not overlooking new or unusual ideas these young minds might have. To create an open and comfortable environment that will help our club grow stronger as a team. Car Goal: To have our new car finish all of the events at the international race. The new car will also finish in the top 20 overall. This will establish UW-Stout as one of the elite teams in the region.

 

What Is SAE Baja

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.

The object 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 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 not only design, build, test, promote, and race a vehicle within the limits of the rules, but also to generate financial support for their project and manage their educational priorities.

All vehicles are powered by a ten-horsepower Intek Model 20 engine donated by Briggs & Stratton Corporation. For over twenty-five years, the generosity of Briggs & Stratton has enabled SAE to provide each team with a dependable engine free of charge. Use of the same engine by all the teams creates a more challenging engineering design test.
