WHAT WE DO


Every year, the McGill Baja Racing Team builds a new single-seat off-road vehicle and brings it across North America to compete with other universities from around the world. Working through the entire design cycle together, we develop real-world skills, equipping us to be the next generation of great engineers.

OUR TEAM


We are a group of over 70 McGill University students of various academic levels working together to design and manufacture an off-road prototype vehicle. While the team consists mostly of engineering students, we have members from all faculties on campus. The McGill Baja Racing Team offers a unique opportunity for students to apply the theory that they learn in class to real engineering processes. We foster an educational culture where veterans teach new members design, analysis, and manufacturing skills. Students also develop their teamwork, project management, and business-related competencies as part of the design phase and competition requirements.

BAJA SAE

WHAT IS BAJA SAE?


Baja SAE is a 3-4 day student design competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Teams of students from around the world participate to design, build, and test small off-road mini-Baja vehicles. Simulating real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges, teams are challenged to design and build a prototype for a reliable, maintainable, ergonomic, and economic production vehicle that serves a recreational user market. The students must function as a team to design, engineer, build, test, promote, and compete with a vehicle within the limits of the rules. Vehicles are judged on a series of static and dynamic events.
