Oral Competition

An engineer, like all professionals, must possess a well-developed ability to communicate, both orally and in writing. The Oral Competition is designed to emphasize the value of an ability to deliver oral presentations.

To participate in the Oral Competition, you must register online through the regional E-Fest website of your choice.  Registration will be available soon.

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

ASME is excited to host an E-Fest Digital event 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 Elevator Pitch Competition and the Environmental Systems Division Competition) and much more!  Additional details will be available soon.  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 will be posted on http://efests.asme.org 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.
