An annual engineering design competition started in 2012 by the University of Maryland Alumni Association, Engineering Chapter. Teams of students from each department will compete against one another in a week-long challenge to develop a machine that will perform a specific task within certain parameters. Teams will be judged on the machine’s effectiveness in completing the task within the parameters given, a demonstration within the design of the team’s respective discipline, an oral presentation and rough sketches in correlation to the design, and team spirit. The task and parameters will be given to each team on the Friday before Engineers Week (this year on Feb. 24, 2017). Students will have one week and a small stipend with which to design, sketch, and build the best machine within their ability to reflect their department.
Teams will demonstrate their designs at the end of E-Week in the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building Rotunda. The judges’ panel will be comprised of 5 individuals from both the Clark School administration and the Alumni Association. The winning team will be memorialized on the Alumni Cup trophy displayed in the west lobby of the Glenn L. Martin Hall.
