SNAME and ASME Will Host First Annual International Student Offshore Design Competition

Tuesday, October 23, 2001
The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) and the Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering Division (OOAE Div) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Offshore (ASME) join forces to host the 2002 International Offshore Student Design Competition (ISODC-2002). The competition promotes interest and awareness for career opportunities in the offshore industry.

The cutoff date for registration is February 28 with the design submissions due June 28. Students work in teams of up to six individuals plus a faculty sponsor. The industry participates through a mentorship program where students can email company representatives with problems or questions. The competition aims at developing an appreciation for the offshore design process and encourages interdisciplinary teamwork and collaborative effort.

A panel of industry experts will select the top five project submissions to be finalists in the International Offshore Design Competition. The top five entries will qualify based on performance in utility, relevance and general interest of the system designed to the offshore industry; demonstrated grasp of the key design issues; system integration, demonstrated teamwork; quality of work in the technical summaries and creativity of the design and in the design approach.

The winning team will be selected based on technical content and execution, documentation and presentation, demonstrated teamwork and creativity. The top three teams will receive cash prizes and recognition plaques. Winners will be notified by September 15 and recognized for their achievements in subsequent SNAME and ASME national events.

To learn more about the competition, review the rules and to enter by web, visit either the ASME OOAE Div web sites at: http://www.ooae.org/ or the SNAME web site at: http://www.sname.org/local_sections_students.htm.
