26th March, 2009 the SAE collegiate chapter of NIT Jamshedpur took off, as NITJAM came to existence. Since then NITJAM (now Daksh) has had no stopping and has been the bearer of the institute pride and prestige at national as well as at international stage. Daksh, represents NIT Jamshedpur at BAJA SAE which is an engineering megaevent.
Baja SAE simulates real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges. Students are tasked to design and build an off-road vehicle that can survive through roughs of the terrain. The competition tests the teams on various grounds including exciting events like mud bog, sled pull, rock crawl, hill climbing and more, where not only the engineering abilities of the students are put to test but also the working methodology, planning and the ability to work as a team in an organized structure so as to meet the given deadlines and constraints.
From designing to sponsorship, team Daksh works in a planned and professional manner based on segment division, prior knowledge acquisition and a proper design methodology. The team has a past record of manufacturing three ATVs for participation in three consecutive events spread over a span of three years.
