Design Competition Teams

SAE Aero

Members enjoy the valuable experience of working on a real-world engineering team, led by a faculty adviser. Each team member has a specific task – engine, structure, landing gear, controls, testing. A team leader integrates all the parts, and together they troubleshoot what comes along.

SAE Baja

Each year, Union mechanical engineering and other students have a go in the Mini-Baja Competition, the rough-and-tumble road race put on by the Society of Automotive Engineers. Teams from the U.S. and Canada design, build, promote, test and race a small, single-seat off-road vehicle and compete against each other in a variety of categories on land and in water, pushing their creations to the limit.
