Putting Wastewater and Environmental Designs to the Test
Students present new wastewater and environmental designs at the WEF Student Design Competition.
The Student Design Competition (SDC) begins at the Member Association (MA) level. Each MA is encouraged to develop their own Student Design Competition based on a chosen design problem or allow student teams to bring problems they are currently working on.
The winner of an MA competition will be invited to compete at WEFTEC in the coming year. If only one school is willing to participate within the MA, that team may compete at WEFTEC assuming they meet the 2020 guidlines. A summary of changes to the 2020 SDC is also available for quick reference.
WEF also understands that many Member Associations are moving their Design Competitions to a digital format. With these changes in mind, the Student Design Compeition Subcommittee has thoughts, recommendations and timeline reminders for WEF MAs.
Due to coronavirus delaying many Member Association SDCs, we are extending the hard deadline for student team submissions by one week.
While we would still prefer to recieve submissions by Friday, May 29, 2020, we will accept them until 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Friday, June 5, 2020.
