Established in 1975 and administered by the Education, Training, Workforce and Development Division (ETWDD), the competition is intended to promote excellence
in the design aspect of nuclear engineering education in the universities. A key feature of the program is industry participation
in the judging of the annual design problem.
Any university is eligible to submit solutions to nuclear engineering design problems, but participants must have a university affiliation and a faculty member as an advisor. There are separate competitions for graduate and undergraduate students. Each university must review solutions by its students and select the best from each category for submission.
A call for submission of nuclear engineering related design problems is issued by March, the intent to participate and 450 to 900-word summary are due in June, and the actual reports must be submitted in July. The final judging to select the top two design projects in both the undergraduate and graduate categories is completed in September. These four project teams are then invited to make presentations at the ANS Winter Meeting for final judging.
