Competitions for undergraduate students
The following is an informal listing of competitions relevant to undergraduate engineering students. To offer suggestions for this list, please contact us.
ACSA/AISC Steel Design Student Competition
Description: Administered by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the program is intended to challenge students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues related to the use of steel in design and construction. Steel must be used as the primary structural material and contain at least one space that requires long-span steel structure, with special emphasis placed on innovation in steel design.
ASME Student Design Competition
Description: 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.
The Student Design Competition showcases the extraordinary talents of mechanical engineering students while encouraging them to develop innovative ideas towards an improved quality of life for all. Each year, several teams of up to four students compete at Student Professional Development Conferences in districts worldwide. Winners then proceed to finals at the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE). Cash prizes and awards are presented to winners at both district and final competitions.
Collegiate Inventors Competition
Description: Introduced in 1990, the Collegiate Inventors Competition has recognized, rewarded, and encouraged hundreds of students to share their inventive ideas with the world. The Competition promotes exploration in invention, science, engineering, technology, and other creative endeavors and provides a window on the technologies from which society will benefit in the future.http://collegiateinventors.org/
Hydrogen Student Design Contest
Description: Since 2004, the Hydrogen Student Design Contest has challenged multi-disciplinary teams of university students to apply their creativity and academic skills in the areas of design, engineering, economics, environmental science, business and marketing to the hydrogen and fuel cell industries.
The Contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students worldwide. Multiple teams from one institution are permitted. Submissions are evaluated by a diverse panel of judges that include industry representatives and officials at U.S. Department of Energy.
The Microsoft Imagine Cup is the world’s premier student technology competition. We invite all eligible students to use their imagination and passion to create a technology solution in one of our competitions and challenges.
Over the past ten years, more than 1.65 million students from more than 190 countries have participated in the Imagine Cup. When you join the Imagine Cup community, you’ll connect with other whip-smart creatives from all over the world to share ideas, have fun, and be there when the next big thing is unveiled.
James Dyson Award
The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. It’s run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to inspire young people about design engineering.
Description: In 2006, Minerva Canada Safety Management Education Inc., with funding from the Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), undertook to develop a program to recognize individual engineering students or teams of such students in Ontario. The awards shall go to those who make an original and unique contribution to integrating safety into engineering design.
The purpose of the awards will be to:
- Encourage students and engineering faculty members to integrate safety into all designs.
- Produce safer designs of devices, processes and systems.
- Raise awareness of Process Safety Management (PSM) and Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) in the Province of Ontario.
National Student Steel Bridge Competition
This prestigious competition offers future structural engineers the opportunity to display their skills in steel design, steel fabrication, and teamwork.
Innovative Designs for Accessibility
Description: The Council of Ontario Universities, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, is pleased to present the third annual Innovative Designs for Accessibility (IDeA) student competition. We are seeking innovative, cost-effective and practical solutions to accessibility-related barriers in the community. We challenge Ontario’s university undergraduate students to use their creativity, working individually or in teams with industry, government and community partners, including members of the disability community, to identify an accessibility-related issue, develop a plan to address the issue, and create an innovative and unique solution to it.
