SAE Collegiate Cup
Speaker: Collegiate Student Leaders
Feb. 25, 2021
We observe “National Engineers Week” with a banquet and technical program featuring presentations by students from Central Michigan University, Kettering University, Saginaw Valley State University, and The Kettering University AutoDrive Challenge Team. The students are members of SAE Collegiate Chapter project teams which compete in the SAE Collegiate Design Series http://students.sae.org/cds/ The design series has grown from a national competition to an international competition featuring students from Asia, Europe, North and South America. During this year’s banquet, the teams present will compete for the annual “SAE Collegiate Cup” presented by the Mid-Michigan Section. This event’s competition will be judged based upon the quality of the oral presentation of the team’s “Design Series” project.
During this unusual year the Leadership Team of the Mid-Michigan Section, SAE will run our Student Night competition a little differently. Following SAE International guide lines, the event will be virtual using the Zoom platform. Student teams will create a 15 minute video outlining their Collegiate Design Series program. These videos will be evaluated by a judging team consisting of collegiate peer review, invited corporate judges, and Mid-Michigan SAE Governing Board members before the Collegiate Cup is awarded. The Peer Review is new this year and will consist of self judging by the CDS Teams that submit videos. The judging criteria will be the same for all judges. Additionally, because of time constrains, the judging will take place in two phases.
Phase 1 will be conducted during the week of February 14 – 20, 2021. Phase 1 will select the top three (3) video presentations.
Phase 2: The top three will be shown during our Student Appreciation Night Zoom meeting. The full Mid-Michigan Section membership will be invited and after each video a short question and answer period will follow.
Following the February 25th event ALL submitted videos will be displayed on the Mid-Michigan video page SAE MidMichigan website for SAE member and public viewing.
