The contestants have to create a cart using specified material that would carry a predetermined load in one day. The design will be evaluated on Concept, Modeling, Prototyping and Test run. The winners take away attractive cash prizes. There will be special prizes for best aesthetics and best CAD model. More details are available at

All leading engineering institutes in and around Tamil Nadu shall participate in this event.

This contest will provide a platform for young designers to showcase their creativity in conceptualization, CAD capabilities and prototyping skills. This will help the students to develop outstanding and innovative designs in their career. This assumes great importance considering that about 200,000 design engineering services jobs will be created in the coming years.

SAE India Southern Section is conducting this event to simulate real world engineering design projects and their related challenges as a part of its commitment to engineering student community in this region.

Satyam Computer Services, a leading global IT services provider, is joining hands with SAE India to encourage the budding talent to get into design work. Speaking about the contest, Mr. Subu D Subramanian, Director & Senior Vice President, Satyam Computer Services Limited, said, “This is an exciting contest and assumes great significance in view of the increasing high end engineering design work being outsourced to India especially in aerospace and automotive domains. Satyam has decided to encourage our budding talents in the country to get into core engineering design work and not just IT alone and events like this would be a stepping stone for them.”
