Compete in the Airbus/WSU Aerospace Engineering Wing Box Contest

The Airbus/WSU Aerospace Engineering Wing Box Design Competition gives students and the public an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of structural analyses and design.

There are three categories participants can compete in:

  • High school: Open to high school student teams. Competitors will design and construct wingboxes and also create a poster display describing their design philosophy and contest-related activities.
  • Open category: Open to the public at large. Practicing engineers in the local aviation industries and hobbyists also are encouraged to compete.
  • AE 525 category: Open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in AE 525: Flight Structures I at WSU. The wing-box design challenge will be mandatory for students enrolled in this course.
