BAJA SAE

Team KNOx is IIT Roorkee's BAJA SAE team, which has been participating in BAJA-SAE India for the past four years. It’s a 25 member team comprising 2nd, 3rd and 4th year students who volunteer their time and talents to conceive, design, and build a small Off-road vehicle without any industrial help. While the Institute provides some assistance, the project is mainly funded through generosity of corporate sponsors and alumni. The competition has 2 levels : i) Virtual BAJA, which comprises of design competition of the vehicle’s computer-based model and analysis. ii) Main Event, held at Pithampura, Indore, . Up against more than 200 other universities, here the car is not only judged on durability at National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRiP), but on design and viability as a mass-produced All-terrain vehicle. The team was awarded 10th position in 2011, 13th in 2012 and 23rd in 2013. Through this practical application of their studies, students utilize leadership, teamwork, marketing, organization and financial skills to succeed in this venture. With the Virtual round of BAJA 2014 cleared, the team is currently fabricating the new rollcage, with spirits roaring. The team also plans to participate in BAJA South Africa 2014 if funds do not prove to become a hindrance. But first, the team is all set to prove its mettle in the upcoming competition in Indore.
