About the competition

The ASCE Sustainable Solutions Competition challenges students to develop a stronger understanding of sustainability and learn to incorporate sustainable solutions into everyday problems that engineers incur. Students are encouraged to be creative in their solutions and use all resources available.

2023 Topic

The fictional City of ASCE wants to revitalize one downtown block of Engineer Street. The City hopes to turn the underutilized area into a gathering place for the community and reimagine the surrounding spaces to create a cohesive and walkable corridor.

Rules and RFIs

The rules are intended to simulate an RFP that responds to a real-world challenge. The sustainability goals for the competition are an integral part of these rules. The purpose of this rules document is to provide students with intentionally general guidelines and encourage teams to rely heavily on their engineering judgment and creativity. Each section in these rules is intended to guide the student teams in the development of their proposal submission. Student teams should read these rules thoroughly and seek clarifications as necessary.

The competition provides a “Requests for Information (RFI)” period so that student teams can ask questions about the rules as needed. See the rules for where and when to send RFIs as well as how to access the responses.
