International 1/4 Scale tractor Student Design Competition

Thursday, May 30, 2019 - Sunday, June 02, 2019 Expo Gardens, Peoria, IL
This competition is unique among student engineering-design contests in that it provides a realistic 360-degree workplace experience. Teams of students are given a 31 hp Briggs & Stratton engine and a set of Titan tires. The design of their tractor is up to them. A panel of industry experts then judge each design for innovation, manufacturability, serviceability, safety, sound level, and ergonomics. Teams also submit a written design report in advance of the competition, and on-site, they must sell their design, in a formal presentation to industry experts playing the role of a corporate management team. Finally, machines are put to the test in three performance events -  three tractor pulls, a maneuverability course, and a durability course.
