ASME Student Design Challenge

Ages:Undergraduate

Types:Submission, Performance

Categories:engineering, STEM

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The ASME Student Design Competition provides a platform for ASME Student Members to present their solutions to a range of design problems - from everyday household tasks to groundbreaking space exploration. Each team is required to design, construct and operate a prototype meeting the requirements of an annually determined problem statement.

Student Design Competitions will be held at ASME’s global E-Fests (Engineering Festivals). E-Fests are a three-day, two-night regional event built around design, advanced manufacturing and robotics technologies. They enable engineering students to expand their knowledge, test and showcase new skills and inspire innovation.

To participate in the Student Design Competition teams must register in advance through the respective E-Fest regional website.

The 2020 Student Design Competition will take place at each of the 4 regional ASME E-Fests.  To compete, every team member must register in advance as an Individual attendee of the specific regional ASME E-Fest.  Additionally, the team captain must register the robot.

Each team is required to design, construct and operate a prototype meeting the requirements of an annually determined problem statement (see the competition website for the annual statement). This year’s challenge requires teams to build a compact engineering system capable of manufacturing a tower made exclusively from standard-sized sheets of paper. The validation of your design will include testing for manufacturing speed, height of tower, and ability to support a load. The testing will occur at each of the ASME EFest Student Design Competitions taking place in 2020 – teams may only participate at one EFest.

Each team's prototype is evaluated on its performance at the ASME E-Fest. During the first day of the competition, devices will be tested in each of the following three modes of operation ○ Higher. Build the tallest paper tower possible within 10 minutes. ○ Faster. Build a 1.5 m tower as quickly as possible. (5 minutes maximum) ○ Stronger. Build the strongest paper tower possible within 10 minutes

Entry Fee:

Eligibility:
Students participating in the competition must be undergraduate engineering students (any engineering discipline is allowed) and must be ASME student members. There is no limit on the number of students on a team or the number of teams from a school. Each student may only participate on one team (contribute to one device) – participants from schools fielding more than one team will be asked to affirm this at the competition.
