CSME National Design Comptetition Cancelled for 2020

Unfortunately due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the competition will be cancelled for this year. There was a great amount of disruption done to Capstone projects across the country, and we were not able to achieve a critical number of applications for the competition. So following the lead of the CSME board, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the competition this year. For the teams that did submit an entry, your entry will be automatically entered into the competition next year.

Announcing the 2020 CSME National Design Competition

We are happy to announce the 2020 CSME National Design Competition.  We had a great success last year, with 13 great capstone projects from across the country.

This year, we will be moving the competition online, with new submission guidelines, and some exciting new winning categories.  This year, we are looking to award capstone projects in the following categories:

  1. Greatest Potential for Social Impact
  2. Capacity to Combat Climate Change
  3. Exceptional Technical Prowess in Mechanical Engineering

Please see the rules page for important dates and submission requirements.

We look forward to discovering and sharing your projects!

Congratulations to 2019’s Winners!
