e-HPVC: e-Human Powered Vehicle Challenge

ASME E-Fests® and ASME EFx® Events in academic year 2023 & 2024

EFx events are IN-PERSON, locally organized throughout the world and several EFx events will include our ASME competitions such as eHPVC.  Please visit the ASME E-Fest website for an updated list of events at https://efests.asme.org/.  Events will be added as they are confirmed. 

ASME will ALSO continue to host our two signature FULLY virtual events:  E-Fest Careers (September 23, 2023) and E-Fest Digital (March 16, 2024). 

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.

Not all EFx events will have every competition available. Check that the eHPVC is available at that event before registering.

What is e-HPVC & 2024 Prizes

ASME's e-Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (e-HPVC), sponsored by Altair, is an engineering design and innovation competition that gives students the opportunity to network and apply engineering principles through the design, fabrication, and racing of human powered vehicles.   

The first HPVC competition was in 1983 at the University of California, Davis and was won by California State University, Chico.
