SPECIAL AWARDS

Formula Hybrid celebrates students and instructors who strive for quality and ingenuity in engineering by awarding the top finishers in the hybrid and electric classes with trophies.


IEEE Excellence in Project Management Award (Trophy)

One IEEE Excellence in Project Management Award will be given in each of the Hybrid and Electric categories

This award recognizes the team that has best demonstrated proficiency in the application of project management methods in the Hybrid and Electric vehicle categories. Selection is based in part on the scores each team has earned for the Project Plan, Interim Progress Report, and Final Presentation events. Of particular interest in the judging are skills in planning, creative problem solving, and disciplined execution of the project plan. A key differentiator between teams is the professionalism displayed in the Final Presentation; quality of the charts, credibility established by the presenters, teamwork demonstrated. The award criteria are not only key to “real life” successful engineering projects, but management and communications skills highly sought after by potential employers.

IEEE Engineering the Future Award (Trophy)

Engineering the Future –  This award considers the multidisciplinary makeup of the team and evidence that the vehicle design contained all of the features of a proper racecar. IEEE Engineering the Future also considers whether the vehicle creates a desire to “take it onto the track and see how it performs.”

IEEE Excellence in EV Engineering Award (Trophy)

Excellence in EV Engineering –  This award focuses on the entire EV engineering process. Judging begins when the Design and Sustainability reports are submitted. The judging continues at the Speedway with an evaluation of each team’s implementation and performance during the dynamics events. Significant emphasis is placed upon preparation, team dynamics, and attention to details. Also important are the intangibles that lead to good performance, reliability, and establish or continue a legacy.
