ASHRAE Student Design Project Competition

Ages:Undergraduate

Type:Submission

Category:STEM

Scope:National

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

ASHRAE sponsors these competitions to encourage students to become involved in a profession that is crucial to insuring a sustainable future for our Earth – the design of energy-efficient HVAC systems. The Integrated Sustainable Building Design (ISBD) competition's aim is to encourage students to extend their knowledge beyond the core mechanical systems. For the ISBD category, the final design level presented may be in a preliminary stage, as the competition's basic intention is to challenge students' imaginative thinking and creative engineering approach to the building and all of its systems. The Applied Engineering Challenge's aim is to encourage student creativity and innovation on an applied engineering concept. This hands on competition is best suited for students that want to invent or optimize equipment technologies in order to solve market or societal problems. This design competition challenges the participants not only on the technical side, but also on conception and communication of details in order to share this technology with developing economies as well as the non-engineering community.

Design their own energy efficient HVAC systems based on annual specifications in four categories. Then students submit the designs to ASHRAE for judging.

See the competition website for specific judging criteria.
