AEI Student Design Competition

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma | April 12, 2017

History

The competition has grown from the initial vision of the Architectural Engineering Institute Board with the hard work of Dr. Mohammed Ettouney and Dr. Amar Chaker in 2008 to develop a program and acquire funding. The Charles Pankow Foundation generously granted ASCE/AEI full funding for the first three years of the competition (beginning in 2010).
