SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) (UTC Racing Mocs)

The UTC Racing Mocs will be created to establish continuity between the members of the current year’s Baja team and the successors of this year’s team by establishing a friendly well organized club/organization. One which encourages underclassmen to stress the importance of their engineering skills. Through continued education, practical real world application of engineering process’, problem solving skills, team building activities, fundraising and sponsorship development, while learning and executing these abilities as one of our officers and/or an underclassman shadow. Organization members will be able to insure potential future involvement based on criteria that is set into action to ensure that all members are dedicated to the responsibility of the course work involved to bring UTC Racing Mocs into the spotlight as a formidable competitor during future SAE Baja competitions… “GO MOCS”
