Sun Devil Racing (SDR) is a student-run organization that competes annually in the Society of Automotive Engineers Baja Competition. Members of SDR are challenged to take knowledge from the classroom and apply them to real-world scenarios; engineering, problem-solving, and teamwork are used to design, manufacture, and test an all-terrain vehicle. Members also gain business skills as they are tasked with creating sales, design, and cost presentations for industry professionals. SDR’s curiosity impacts how the team approaches the end goal of a program that can compete and achieve top placement against hundreds of other colleges and universities from around the globe.
