Teams of three students compete to create an original design over the course of one day. Design briefs are distributed in the morning and students then worked together to create an original design that satisfies the given constraints. At all competitions, we try to bring in Chevron employees as judges and have design projects that are based around possible Chevron needs; these events are collectively branded as the Chevron Design Challenge.
Teams meet various deadlines throughout the day at which time they must submit sketches of their design, engineering drawings of all parts, and an exploded view with embedded bill-of- materials. Finally, in the evening, the teams present their designs to a panel of industry experts, including representatives from Chevron. Points are awarded for all elements of their work throughout the day and prizes are awarded at the end.
Presentations begin at 3:00 PM
