Due to the costs associated with designing, building, and testing a vehicle every year, UW Baja must look for additional funding through corporate sponsors and donors. The Baja team relies on the generosity of its sponsors to remain liquid.

As Canada's premier engineering school, our exposure is second to none. Having your company's logo on our vehicle, website, and team apparel is a great advertising opportunity for your organization to reach thousands of co-op students and graduating students. The UW Baja garage is located in the heart of Engineering 5, the primary event location for many University events such as Hack the North and government town halls.

If you have questions regarding sponsorship please contact us.


We will aim to provide our sponsors with the best promotional value possible. UW Baja take great pride in representing our sponsors at local and international events.


Cash sponsorships are used to cover material costs, commercial part purchases, and competition fees and travel expenses.


Our machine shop often does not have the capability to fabricate many of the vehicle components. In-kind sponsors can donate machining technology, time, and expertise to help manufacture complex and precise components.


UW Baja SAE also accepts donations to the team that can be exchanged for a charitable tax receipt from the University of Waterloo. Unfortunately we are forbidden by law to provide advertising for our donors.
