The Baja SAE Lab is equipped with four workstations dedicated to each main subsystem of the vehicle: Drivetrain, Suspension, Brakes and Ergonomics. Each area has its own storage designated for parts.

The lab includes a welding table equipped for jigging and welding of chassis/other parts, as well as an office area used for design development by the Baja SAE team.

The Baja SAE team was founded in 2005 to build, test and race single-seat off-road Baja vehicles for competitions sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The team is now primarily female-led and aims to provide women with the ability to feel empowered in the male-dominated field of vehicle design and assembly.
