Jul '08
This year, AATCC celebrated its third annual, student Materials Design Competition developed by the Materials Interest Group.

The competition aimed to promote innovative product development from a material structures design perspective. Both graduate and undergraduate students were invited to participate each year.

The three categories of this year's competition were Industrial/Technical and Sports Materials, Medical, Biomedical/Protective Materials and Devices, and Smart/Electronic/Optoelectronic Nano-materials.

All entries were evaluated on concept originality, design element integration, technical feasibility, clarity of supporting documentation, technical and materials rationale, efficacy of the proposed commercialization of the idea, and viability of economic cost analysis.

Winning entries received cash awards of US$1,000 for first place and US$500 for second place in each category and complimentary student registrations for the 2009 AATCC International Conference, to be held in Myrtle Beach, S.C., U.S.A., March 10-12, 2009.

AATCC received entries developed by 17 students from Clemson University, North Carolina State University, and the University of Nevada, Reno.

The caliber of the entries was excellent and the judges had a difficult task determining the winners. Competition judging was administered by Gary C. Lickfield, Clemson University; Ian Hardin, University of Georgia; Bill Haile, Journal of Engineered Fibers and Fabrics; Philip J. Brown, Clemson University; and Fred L. Cook, Georgia Institute of Technology.

The winners of the 2008 Materials Design Competition are:
Industrial/Technical and Sports Materials Winners
1st Place - Private Protection Inc by Elizabeth Lyles, Courtney Merritt, William Alligood III, and Mallory Foushee of North Carolina State University
2nd Place - Fuzie Mat by Paul Hoang, Sarah Davis, Carly Herring, and Amanda Wayer of North Carolina State University
