AIAA Region II Student Conference

Regional Design Team Competition (Oral Competition Only)

1. Design teams are to consist of three or more students. These students may be any combination of graduate and undergraduate students.

2. Any topic appropriate for engineering design is eligible for the design competition.

3. Except by prior arrangement with the Judging Coordinator, ALL MEMBERS of the design team must attend the conference.

4. A letter of intent to participate must be received by the Judging Coordinator. The Letter of Intent will be uploaded directly through the regional conference website.  Any registered student who has joined the team during their registration will have the ability to upload the team's letter of intent from their registration summary page. See key dates for timeline.

5. The letter must include the following:
A) the name of the university, the department, and the name of the faculty member sponsoring the design project;
B) the names of all members of the design team with the team leader indicated;
C) a brief description of what is to be designed; (Note: one page should cover this. Detailed design criteria are not required.)
D) a brief description of the approach to be used in the design;
E) the products of the design, the deliverables; (e.g. are you going to produce a working prototype, a set of detailed fabrication drawings, a set of assembly drawings, a model?)
6. Each Student Branch is allowed to enter multiple design teams in the design competition. Student delegates should be limited to participate in only one design team. The conference reserves the right to ask a school that is bringing multiple design teams, to reduce that number if the need arises due to space or scheduling conflicts.
