Team Daksh participates in the event BAJA organised by SAE INDIA and SAE INTERNATIONAL. In this event we design, modify and fabricate a prototype of a rugged, single seated All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) with serious off-roading capabilities. The vehicle must be safe, easily transportable and fun to drive. SAE sets restriction on the engine, dimensions and other components being used in the vehicle so that the knowledge, creativity and imagination of the students is challenged. Right from designing and analysis of the 3D model to complete fabrication is done in the workshop of the college only by the B.Tech students.
