AATCC congratulates the entrants and winners in its fourth annual Materials Design Competition for students. Submissions are invited each year from both undergraduate and graduate students.

Students had a choice of three categories for their entries. 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.
