Deadline and Fees


On February 23, 2019 the Purdue Student Chapter and Central Indiana held an impromptu student design competition on Purdue's Campus.  Students on campus and from Ball State University and IUPUI participated.  During this one day event students walked in the shoes of a consulting HVAC engineer.  Student teams of 3 or 4 worked directly with one or two industry experts to design a new, fictitious dorm on campus.  Each team presented their schematic design in a 10 minute presentation to a panel of judges.  The winning teams are pictured below.



A similar competition is in planning for 2020.  Stay tuned!
