The DRC has two rounds:

The Qualifying Round is open to any student at UAH. We are looking for your unique solutions to solve your day to day DORM ROOM CHALLENGES.

Entries must be in the form of a hand or technical drawing or 2D/3D CAD files. No physical object is required. A panel of independent judges will score all entries. The top five designs will be selected for the Grand Finale Round. To apply visit here.

In the Grand Finale Round, designs must be fabricated or made using resources that are available to students either on campus or in the community (such as workshops, labs, or maker spaces). These designs will be presented to judges at an event at the I²C. Top 3 designs / presentations win CASH.
