The Baja sae India student challenge is a feted student competition that presents the undergraduate engineering students with a simulating task of designing, fabricating and validating an all terrain vehicle. The history of the event dates back to mid 70’s when it originated in USA and since then it is conducted annually at several locations across the globe, including USA, Mexico, Canada, South Africa, Brazil, and Korea, witnessing participation from prominent technical school around the world. The project inculcates and channelizes the exuberance of the youth by providing them a global platform to prove their worth, giving them a pragmatic exposure t the real world challenge as faced in the industry.

Making the students realize their talent trough such an experience fulfils the prime objective of bringing out the aptitude to serve the nation for years to come, in continuation with the vision Automotive Mission Plan (AMP 2016) a dream to make India an International Automotive hub. The BAJA SAE INDIA was successfully held in 2007, 2009 and 2010 at the NATRAX (National Test Track) facility of NATRIP (National Automotive Testing & R&D Infrastructure Project) situated at Pithampur in Madhya Pradesh which has shown an exponential growth.
