Professional Paper


The professional paper is an often overlooked part of the SESC. Only one person participates in the event at the SESC, but it is weighted heavily in overall ranking calculations. Furthermore, there is a scholarship opportunity as it coincides with the Daniel W. Mead Student Contest scholarship. The topic varies from year to year, but the competition consists of writing a brief paper (2,000 words or less) and presenting that paper at the SESC.


See the rules and more information at Daniel W. Mead Student Contest Scholarship.

Other small events vary as the host school defines the rules. Traditionally, there are competitions in environmental, geotechnical and transportation engineering. There is also a concrete cylinder, small concrete (bocce ball, golf, Frisbee), small structure (balsa tower, spaghetti bridge), visual display, t-shirt, mystery, surveying, and plan reading.
