Your support is critical to our team’s continued success. Our team goals are: to work within our budget constraints to design and build a top ranked vehicle, to place first at competition (typically each event attracts 100 university teams), and to solidify ND Baja's reputation for consistently producing the highest caliber engineers.
The University as a whole and the Mechanical Engineering Department within the College of Engineering have limited budgets. The annual cost of competing in the SAE sanctioned Baja competitions is in excess of $30,000. That amount breaks down roughly as follows: $4,000 to chassis and materials, $6,000 to machining, $2,000 to testing and equipment, and $18,000 to competition registration and travel.
