Extreme Engineering is what Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Collegiate Design Competition is all about. Going beyond textbook theory by designing, building and testing the performance of a real vehicle. For the 10th year, CECS entered the Baja SAE competition with a team of  22 students from Civil, Electrical, Industrial, and Mechanical Engineering.  Traveling to Gorman, California, the team’s efforts were part of an interdisciplinary design course, and were supported by generous gifts from the Volkswagen Group and Denso.
