Human-powered transport is often the only type available in underdeveloped or inaccessible parts of the world, and if well designed, can be an increasingly viable form of sustainable transportation.
ASME's international Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the application of sound engineering design principles in the development of sustainable and practical transportation alternatives.In the HPVC, students work in teams to design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles for everyday use—from commuting to work, to carrying goods to market.
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 take place at ASME E-Fests and 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 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.
The ASME Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D (IAM3D) Challenge is designed to give mechanical and multi-disciplinary undergraduate students around the world an opportunity to re-engineer existing products or create new designs that minimize energy consumption and/or improve energy efficiency. Students will showcase their creativity by demonstrating the value added through their ingenuity, application of sound engineering design principles, and leveraging.
Additive Manufacturing technology to address a broad spectrum of industrial, manufacturing, and humanitarian challenges.
Through annual financial contributions and volunteer time and efforts, the Old Guard conducts the oral presentation competition, Video presentation competition, Technical web page competition and Technical poster competition for the benefit of engineering students and early career engineers, and ultimately for the good of the engineering profession.
This phase of event would specifically emphasize on encouraging critical thinking amongst participants. A problem statement or multiple set of problems (related to automation theme and event) would be exhibited and a time of 1 hour would be given to discuss the solution amongst their team internally. The team representative then has to present the solution in front of judging panel and all other teams.
The IDC is a creative exercise intended to engage students to allow them to unleash their creativity. The IDC is a simple and fun activity that is easy to plan or impromptu on-the-spot designed contest. One such example: students are provided ordinary everyday items (notebooks, tape, scissors, pencils, a cardboard box) and form teams of 4. The team is asked to devise a model airplane that can travel the furthest distance. There are several variations, e.g. mousetrap car race; egg drop contest; etc.. In essence, the IDC provide the opportunity for those who aren’t participating in any of the competitions to actually get hands-on and build something. Furthermore, the IDC helps develop problem solving skills in engineering students and early career engineers as they learn how leverage available tools and resources, personal experience, and ultimately develop the confidence needed to solve the complex challenges facing their local and the global community.
