ERAU - Womens 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.

       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 for a reliable, maintainable, ergonomic, and economic production vehicle which serves a recreational user market, sized at approximately 4000 units per year.  The vehicle should aspire to market- leading performance in terms of speed, handling, ride, and ruggedness over rough terrain and off-road.  Performance will be measured by success in the dynamic events which are described in the Baja SAE Rules, and are subject to on-event weather and course conditions.

       The Embry Riddle team is the only one in the competition that is entirely composed of women.
