IAM3D™: Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D Challenge

ATTENTION E-FESTERS!  Please read this important announcement about ASME E-Fests® in 2021

ASME is excited to host a second E-Fest Digital on April 24, 2021.  E-Fest Digital will include career and professional development content, digital competitions (including the Human Powered Vehicle Challenge, the Student Design Competition, the Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D Competition, the Oral Competition, the Environmental Systems Division Oral Competition and the Elevator Pitch Competition) and much more!  Questions may be directed to efests@asme.org.

We encourage students, competitors, and faculty members to take advantage of the learning experiences provided by both our competitions and other digital offerings throughout the year.  Questions may be directed to efests@asme.org and a digital calendar is posted on https://www.asme.org/conferences-events/events (sort by audience type students/early career engineer) with lots of information.

All ASME conferences, meetings and events scheduled through December 2021 are being planned as virtual only, enabling everyone to enjoy the full benefits of participation via our virtual event solutions with no physical presence required. ASME will not have any physical or in-person events during this time but will continue to deliver the insights and expertise that our community depends upon.  For more information about ASME’s virtual approach to events and meetings, visit https://www.asme.org/anywhere.

Students are encouraged to download E-Fest competitions rules at https://efests.asme.org/competitions for our 2021 Digital events.
