Student Design Competition

We’re excited to announce that the Student Design Competition will now be taking place at ASME’s global E-Fests (Engineering Festivals). E-Fests are three-day, two-night regional events built around design, advanced manufacturing and robotics technologies. They enable engineering students to expand their knowledge, test and showcase new skills and inspire innovation.

You must register online for the Student Design Competition through the regional E-Fest website.
E-Fests will be taking place in the following locations in 2017:

E-Fest Asia Pacific

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.

Each year, several teams of up to four students compete at the regional Student Professional Development Conferences in select locations 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 regional competitions and the finals.

Major funding provided by:

2018 Student Design Competition

Robot Football:  Goooaaalll!!!

In the summer of 2018 the sporting world’s attention will be drawn to the FIFA World Cup in

Russia, where the best football (soccer in the US) teams will compete. The 2018 Student Design

Competition challenges your imagination and technical design skills to create a “team” to compete

against three other teams in a modified four-way football competition.

You may choose to construct a team that is just one device or a team with multiple devices that are remotely controlled and must fit in a specified box provided by your team. The competition will have a multi-game group stage followed by a semi-final and final round for the top teams.

2017 Student Design Competition:

The Robot Pentathlon: Citius, Altius, Ingenious

The Olympic Summer Games test the abilities of people throughout the world in a wide variety of athletic challenges. The athlete that wins the Olympic decathlon or heptathlon is referred to as the world’s greatest male or female athlete.

The 2017 Student Design Competition challenges your technical design skills to create a robot that is fast, strong, and agile. Your team must build a remotely controlled device to compete against others in five different events – a robot pentathlon. Scores from each of the events will be combined to determine the overall champion.
