ASEE Video Contest – $3000 top prize!

For ASEE’s 125th Anniversary Celebration, we are asking students to create a video that shows where engineering education will be in 25 years!

The scene: You are 25 years into your career as faculty, dean, chair, provost or president at your dream university.

  • What does engineering education look like?
  • What changes have been implemented?
  • What does the student body look like? How are classes taught?

Undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students are encouraged to submit a 90-second video where you creatively explore these topics.

The winning video will be shown at the 2019 ASEE Annual Conference in Tampa and the winning team (up to two people) will win a trip to the conference, along with $3000.   More details are at our 125th Anniversary website.

Register by December 1 and submit by February 1.

We look forward to seeing your entry!  Contact Katie Carroll for more info.
