The ASME Student Mechanism & Robot Design Competition is an excellent opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their abilities in designing mechanisms and robots. All entries are welcome, though the judging is more focused on the mechanical & mechatronic aspects of design.
This competition consists of two rounds: in round one, student(s) submit a report on their design, and in round two, several teams are invited to the conference to present their design. Winners of the competition will be recognized during the Mechanisms & Robotics award session, and presented with awards that in the past have included both cash and software prizes.
Some travel funds are available for the finalists. The funds can cover the ASME IDETC registration, hotel stay, transportation (airfare), and meals (on a per diem basis).
If you are a student, please apply! If you are an engineer or professor, please distribute! Share this email and the linked flyer with your colleagues working in the mechanisms and robotics area, and post it on department bulletin boards for further dissemination.
