We are pleased that the FAA is continuing to offer a Design Competition for Universities for the 2009 – 2010 academic year! The Competition has added new design categories.
The broad challenge categories of Airport Operations and Maintenance, Runway Safety/Runway Incursions, Airport Environmental Interactions and Airport Management and Planning embrace many engineering, science, information technology, psychology and management disciplines. The Competition is again open to individual and student teams at U.S. colleges and universities (both undergraduate and graduate) working under the mentorship of a faculty advisor. Winners can earn cash awards and first place winners have the opportunity and travel funds to present their design at the FAA Headquarters in Washington, DC, June 2010. A notice of intent is strongly encouraged.
The Competition guidelines and many resources are posted at the Competition website: http://FAADesignCompetition.odu.edu
