Government College of Technology, Coimbatore (abbreviated as GCT) is an autonomous state-funded engineering college located in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. It is one of the premier and reputed institutes in India. In the past 74 years of its existence, GCT has trained and transformed many ordinary students into the best Engineers of India. In this brief period, GCT has not only witnessed academic achievements but also quite a few extracurricular accomplishments. GCT’s model of success is student-driven, with only a little but a very vital push from the faculties. In GCT, students are never forced to perform, and whatever we do, is out of our own interest and dedication. Such levels of dedication are the reasons why the reputation of GCT has remained difficult to be tampered.
Baja SAE is an intercollegiate design competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). SAE is the leader in connecting and educating engineers while promoting, developing and advancing aerospace, commercial vehicle and automotive engineering. Teams of students from universities all over the world design and build small off-road cars. Baja SAE challenges engineering students to design and build an off-road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain and in some competitions, water. As in real work situations, these future engineers work together as a team to discover and resolve technical challenges in design, test, and manufacturing, as well as business issues. The most rugged of all the competitions, Baja SAE also gives students the first-hand challenge of pursuing their passion while managing real-life demands and priorities. Each team's goal is to design and build a prototype of an all-weather, rugged, single-seat, off-road recreational vehicle.
