At CIT we have CIT SAE Collegiate Club with 250 registered members under the guidance of Faculty team Mr. M. velliangiri, Dr. G. Sureshkannan, Mr. S. Thirumuruan, Mr. M. Karthikeyan and Mr. K. Karthik. We have separate student project teams working for SAE events like BAJA, SUPRA, GOKART and QUADBIKE. Each team focuses on design, fabrication and validation of single-seater four-wheeled off-road and on road vehicle to take part in series of events. The team performed sound engineering practices for the agility of the vehicle in terms of gradeability, speed, acceleration and mobility characteristics and finally its ability to endure a back-breaking durability test.
Our first and foremost achievement is that the students gained immense amount of knowledge by applying their engineering skills and ideas in the real time projects like an all-terrain and on-road racing vehicle. CIT BAJA “Drifting Dragons” team won the second place with “DRONACHARYA AWARD” by faculty advisor Assistant Professor Mr. M. VELLIANGIRI M.E., among the 240 teams participated in the SAE BAJA INDIA 2017 at Madhyapradesh, Indore.
