Olin Baja

Who We Are:  Olin Baja is a student-run organization, and each year we design and build an off-road race vehicle to compete in SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) competitions across the United States against over 100 teams from around the world. Our team is comprised of about 30 undergraduate engineers ranging from first through senior year students.  While students begin hands-on projects immediately at Olin, Baja provides excellent opportunities for team members to build on skills learned in the classroom and gain valuable hands-on experience from an industry-relevant engineering project.  This experience opens up many internship and full-time opportunities for our team members and we are very proud of our many alumni who are now working for major engineering companies.

What We're Doing:  This year we are going to two competitions: Maryland in April and Kansas in May. Our team is raising funds in order to build the car and get us to competition. It is a full redesign year- so we have overhauled every system of the car: suspension, drivetrain, and chassis based on knowledge gathered from the past three years! As part of the Olin Baja philosophy, each member is able to and encouraged to design and fabricate assemble their own pieces that go onto the car- something many teams don't do. 

Sneak Peek at 2018's Car!

This past year, we finished the Endurance race without any major snags (a great feat!) and historically, we have performed very well for a team our age and size, including winning 1st place in the sales presentation in 2015!

How You Can Help:  However, competition is expensive with transportation, hotels, and registration fees.  We do not receive any financial support from the school so we rely solely on sponsorships and donations from parents, alumni, parents of alumni, and supporters of the team to fund our design and competition goals. We would love your help to raise $5,000 to create our vehicle and get the team to the competitions this year. 

Please donate to support all of our hard work, and welcome to the Olin Baja family!
