Annual Report: Gonzaga's Society of Automotive Engineers is a club designed for engineering students with mechanical and automotive interests to pursue student-run club projects and competitions. This club works closely with the Gonzaga University Machine Shop, and focuses on providing hands-on exposure for students to apply classroom knowledge to club-based projects. Over the 2013-2014 school year, Gonzaga's SAE researched, designed, modeled on SolidWork, performed calculations, and constructed a Mini Baja vehicle all within the club. In April, the club competed in the SAE International Mini Baja Competition, proudly representing the University in El Paso, Texas. Gonzaga's Society of Automotive Engineers strives to take on projects that convert the skills and knowledge learned in school to practice and hands-on exposure.
