The Competitions

ASME’s Engineering Festivals (E-Fests) are three-day, two-night regional events for engineering students. These events include design competitions, career development workshops, access to thought leaders and innovators in various engineering fields, and networking opportunities—all to inspire the next generation of change-makers.

Built around design, advanced manufacturing, and robotics technologies, these events connect students with practicing engineers as they become part of the diverse and multidisciplinary ASME engineering community.
