NMSU Society of Automotive Engineers BAJA

*New Member Packet*


We meet on Wednesday evenings at 5:30 pm in EC III Room 301






Baja is a nationwide program where college teams design, build, and race an off-road vehicle.


But it is also so much more than that.


We want to run Baja as a “Pre-Employment Program”. We want you to gain the skills you need to not only become a better engineer (accountant… etc.), but to be able to stand out in an interview. Employers understand the benefits of being part of a student organization, especially SAE Baja.  Being able to present something tangible, such as your NMSU SAE Baja Project Notebook, speaks volumes. It shows you understand the engineering process, design reviews and working with other engineers. We want to not only teach you these various engineering skills throughout the year, but we also want to teach you how to properly document them. If you are not able to convey what you know, your knowledge is useless. That is why there is now a membership fee, because we want to help you grow. This will cover your engineering notebook along with a T-shirt that shows you are part of the best student organization on campus.  Look at it as an investment in your future.  It starts here.

The NMSU SAE Baja team accepts any undergrad or graduate student enrolled at the university. We openly encourage the membership of any non-engineering students, the competition consists of much more than the performance of the car.


We are nothing more here at SAE Baja than a close-knit group of friends that all share a common passion for motorsports and want to put together something we can call our own. We would love to take you in as a new-comer and make you feel part of the family. Stop in and introduce yourself and we’ll be more than happy to get you acquainted and caught up with all that’s going on with the current car.
Feel free to contact either our President, Drew Cassidy, or our Faculty Advisor, Ken Ruble, with any question you may have as a potential member.
