FAA Design Competition for Universities – Deadline April 16, 2010

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is again sponsoring a national FAA Design Competition for Universities that engages undergraduate and graduate students at U.S. colleges in addressing issues relating to airports for the 2009 – 2010 academic year. This competition opens on August 28, 2009 and closes on April 16, 2010.

Students can address technical challenges regarding the safety, capacity and efficiency of the nation’s airports, offer innovative solutions, and win cash for outstanding proposals. The FAA hopes that the Competition challenges will provide a meaningful educational experience for individual students or students working in teams either as part of a class assignment, independent study or a project undertaken by a student professional society. Challenges are interdisciplinary in nature, encouraging participation from many engineering, technology and science disciplines. The Virginia Space Grant Consortium is managing the program for the FAA.
