ASME Student Competition Team

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is an international professional society that consists of professional engineers of many disciplines, people interested in the advancement of technology, and students. Through the Binghamton University Chapter, students are given the opportunity to get a first- hand look at today's industrial world. Students visit engineering companies and large manufacturing facilities.

Human-Powered Vehicle Competition Team

Human-powered transport is often the only type available in underdeveloped or inaccessible parts of the world, and if well designed, can be an increasingly viable form of sustainable transportation. ASME's International Human-Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the application of sound engineering design principles in the development of sustainable and practical transportation alternatives. Students work in teams to design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles for everyday use—from commuting to work to carrying goods to market.

MicroMouse Competition Team

The MicroMouse competition consists of a student-designed robot that has ten minutes to make as many successful autonomous runs to the middle of a maze in a 10'x10' space as it could with the fastest recorded as the official competition time. The robot is controlled with a flood-fill navigational algorithm and requires no further outside control after you press the start button.

Westgate Fund for Student Projects

The Westgate Fund for Student Projects was established in recognition of Dean Roger Westgate, who was the second Dean of the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Binghamton University. The funds are earmarked to encourage student competitions and student-initiated projects in their senior design, capstone classes.
