R&D Student Competition

Each year, NYSP2I hosts a R&D Student Competition. The Competition provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate level student teams from colleges and universities across New York State to get involved by researching, developing and designing solutions to real-world environmental challenges. The competition promotes creative thinking, problem solving, teamwork and collaboration across disciplines. Student teams selected to participate in the competition present their projects to environmental experts, gain insight from established professionals and receive recognition by potential future employers.

The competition typically kicks off in the early fall with student team applications due by the late fall. Student teams selected to participate are given approximately four months to complete projects. The competition concludes with an exhibition and winner selection in late April at one of the four NYSP2I partner universities (Rochester Institute of Technology, Clarkson University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute or University at Buffalo).

The exhibition also provides an opportunity for students to explore environmentally-focused career opportunities. If your company or organization is recruiting for this type of position and would like to participate, please contact us.

Application deadline for the 2017 R&D Student Competition is Friday, November 11th.
