Baja SAE is an intercollegiate racing series where we design, build, and compete in custom off-road racing vehicles. The Baja SAE team is where I got to apply the core mechanical engineering principles I learned in the classroom. During my five years on the team, my focus has been suspension design. To manufacture the parts of the car I learned hand machining (manual mill and lathe) as well as how to CAM for the CNC. I have worked on and built parts for every system of the car.
