The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is sponsoring a national FAA Design Competition for Universities for the 2011-2012 academic year!
This year the competition has added new design categories in each challenge area in addition to the previous categories. The challenge categories of Airport Operations and Maintenance, Runway Safety/Runway Incursions/Runway Excursions, Airport Environmental Interactions and Airport Management and Planning appeal to a wide variety of disciplines such as engineering, science, information technology, psychology and management.
The competition is open to individual and student teams (undergraduate and graduate) from U.S. colleges and universities working under a faculty advisor.
Winners can earn cash rewards and first place winners have the opportunity and travel funds to present their design at a national aviation event in summer 2012 and at one other professional meeting.
