  • Interact with professional NASA engineers
  • Earn a chance to win a $750 cash award
"Systems Engineering: From Concept to Reality"
The NASA Systems Engineering Award, sponsored in conjunction with the SAE Aero Design® competitions, provides an opportunity for student teams to obtain first-hand experience applying NASA's best engineering practices; manage their efforts for best performance, cost, schedule, and risk; and interact with professional NASA engineers. In addition, the winning submission at the West and East competitions will each earn a $750 cash award.

The rules call for applying systems engineering best practices to the design and development of the entries in the SAE Aero Design® competitions and the submission of two reports. The first report describes the team's approach to managing performance, risk, cost, and schedule to meet the SAE Aero Design® requirements. The second report is the As Built report, which describes the rationale for changes between the initial design and the final vehicle.
