WERC’s Environmental Design Contest is a unique event that brings together industry, government and academia in the search for improved environmental solutions. Held annually since 1991 at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico, the contest draws hundreds of college students from throughout the United States and around the world. The student teams design solutions for real-world problems while developing fully operational bench-scale solutions that are presented to panels of judges comprised of environmental professionals. The teams prepare four different presentations: written, oral, poster and bench-scale model.  You may enter as many teams as your university would like in any of the tasks. Many universities use the contest as part of their capstone design courses. After the contest, WERC provides the judges’ feedback to the participants. Feedback to the students has become an important part of ABET accreditation. Our current plan is to hold the contest at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Museum in Las Cruces (Directions).  Please be aware that this may change based on the number of teams that register.
