Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) and ET Foundation are inviting entries for the 2022 International Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition, open to students worldwide.
The Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition is intended to enlighten students studying engineering, design, architecture and related fields about aluminum extrusions’ superior advantages and many applications.
$15,500 in Student Scholarships, and a $3,500 Grand Prize to the best design regardless of competition class. Professional designers and engineers will compete in a separate competition class.
AEC created The Extrusion Technology for Aluminum Profiles Foundation (ET Foundation) to develop, promote, provide, and fund education and research related to aluminum extrusion processes and technologies, as well as to further encourage interest in the field.
Students are challenged to think about aluminum extrusions as a holistic solution to a design problem by creating a product or system that includes at least one extruded aluminum component. Think beyond the ordinary to come up with unique and resourceful uses for aluminum extrusion.
Individual and team entries will be accepted. Students must currently be enrolled in high school, university, trade or design school to be eligible.
