The BAJA SAE Series is an event for the undergraduate engineering students, organized globally by the Society of Automotive Engineers, USA. The event originated in the name of Mini - BAJA, in the year 1976 at University of Carolina. Since then, the event has spanned across six countries – USA, Mexico, South Africa, Korea, Brazil and India. The BAJA SAE tasks the students to design, fabricate and validate a single seater four - wheeled off road vehicle to take part in series of events spread over a course of 3 days that test the vehicle for the sound engineering practices that have gone into it, the agility of the vehicle in terms of gradability, speed, acceleration and manoeuvrability characteristics and finally its ability to endure that back breaking durability test.

We have registered for SAE BAJE competion organized by SAEINDIA.

RIT BAJA Team attended All- Terrain Vehicle design for virtual BAJA SAE India 2016 Competition organized by Christ Univerity, Bangalore from 24.06.2016 to 25.06.2016.


The Virtual BAJA SAEINDIA is a filtration criterion,through which all the registered teams are scrutinized for their knowledge and capability to participate successfully in the main event.The Virtual BAJA SAEINDIA acts as a pre-qualifier to participation in the BAJA SAEINDIA event.

The objectives of the Virtual BAJA Event are as follows:

1. To acquaint the teams completely with the objectives of the BAJA SAEINDIA event.

2. The teams are required to familiarize themselves with the technical guidelines and limits for the design of BAJA vehicle.

3. To design the complete CAD Model of the BAJA Vehicle.The design should be complete in all respects to the extent of being considered ready-to-manufacturing.In 2018 BAJA the 388 teams are registered for the Virtual BAJA from that the 364 teams are attended on that day.Virtual BAJA SAEINDIA 2017 hosted at CHITKARA UNIVERSITY Patiala,Punjab -140401 during 14.07.2017-15.07.2017.
