Off-road Adventures

The DENSO North America Foundation supports college teams in the Baja SAE Series, including Tennessee Tech University’s Tsunami team, whose car No. 101 placed fourth overall out of 100 teams in the 2009 event held in Alabama. Baja SAE involves three regional competitions that simulate real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges.

Engineering students must design and build an off-road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain and sometimes even water. The competition provides SAE student members with a challenging project that involves the planning and manufacturing tasks found when introducing a new product to the consumer industrial market.
