Undergraduates are invited to submit design projects to SAME to show off your talent for innovative thinking. Winners will be recognized by SAME and all eligible entries will be marketed to SAME's private sector members to highlight your problem-solving capabilities.
SAME student members represent the next generation of innovative STEM thinkers ready to take on society’s challenges. For this reason, the Society is hosting an undergraduate innovation challenge to identify and recognize their great ideas. The competition was developed to utilize design projects students developed as part of the degree curriculums of SAME student members.
A major part of project design is communicating the project’s purpose and utility, and describing the design process to others, including colleagues, superiors, outside clients, or the general public. Effective communication is key to expressing the importance of your work to relevant stakeholders. This competition emphasizes that importance. With a focus on the utility of the design and the ability to bring it to market, the competition highlights the innovative thinking of SAME student members.
Three top projects will be identified by the review panel made up of SAME industry members. The project team for each top project split a $500 award and present their concept to SAME industry members.
Submissions for 2022 are closed.
