What is e-HPVC, 2022 Prizes & Resources & Upcoming Webinars

ASME's Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (e-HPVC) 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.  Sponsored by Altair, we've added an electric component to the 2022 competition.  

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