By finishing in third place in the southern regional competition we are one of 31 universities from the entire country (and Mexico and Canada) eligible to compete in Nationals which take place in October 2012. We are the only school from all Tennessee to qualify for nationals and we also finished ahead of Virginia Tech, Florida, and Georgia Tech! This year nationals will take place at Pittsburgh, PA and we need more sponsors in order to get there.
By qualifying for nationals, we have to perfect our entry and at the same time start preparing for 2013 regionals. Taking into account car costs and travel expenses for nationals and next year's regional conference, we need to raise $14,000. An approximate budget can be found at the following link: Estimated Budget.
The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is the largest chemical engineering society for students and professionals, and the national AIChE Meeting is the largest conference hosted by AIChE each year. As a result, any sponsorship of our car will result in large exposure to students, faculty, and practicing engineers alike.
Sponsorships of any size or donations of any type will be greatly appreciated as we continue to prepare for our first appearance at nationals. By sponsoring our project:
