2017-2018 the Airport Cooperative Research Program University Design Competition

I am writing to share the new Guidelines for 2017-2018 Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) University Design Competition for Addressing Airport Needs. We hope that faculty will encourage university students to participate in the competition which offersopen-ended, real-world challenges that cross many science, engineering and business disciplines, including computer science. This is often done as part of a capstone design course, for independent credit or as a student professional society project.
