See the future of manufacturing in action at the Inaugural Student Competition!


The SME Annual Conference Student Competition is a collegiate-level manufacturing competition where student chapter members choose their own manufacturing project. The students then build the project to highlight and be evaluated. Any type of engineering principle, concept or process may be applied in the design and manufacturing of the project entry.

Make sure to stop by the SME Resource Center to view the eight schools entered this year. Judging and Q&A will take place on Monday, June 4 from 9:15 – 11:45 a.m. and winners will be announced at the Awards Gala Reception from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
