NYIT ASME places 4th in International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition

The NYIT American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) recently attended the annual International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE), which was held in San Diego, CA. Because of their impressive performance at the Student Professional Design Competition (SPDC) hosted by NYIT last spring, NYIT's ASME was invited to participate in the IMECE Student Design Competition against 23 other international colleges and universities, including Hong Kong Polytechnic Institute, WPI, the British University of Egypt, and Universidad de los Andes.

The ASME Student Design Competition is a platform for ASME Student Members to present their solutions to a range of design problems--from everyday household tasks to groundbreaking space exploration. Each team is required to design, construct, and operate a prototype meeting the requirements of annually determined problem statement. This year's challenge was to create a robot that could successfully operate in a simulated nuclear disaster. The competition consisted of a maze-like obstacle course representing a nuclear hazard area in which the robot had to complete a range of tasks in a set amount of time. The robot operators could drive only with the help of cameras, and had to be able to press buttons, pick up and drop off small objects, and read codes. Out of the 23 competing schools, NYIT placed 4th in the world for their performance on the course.
