All teams should consist of undergraduate students only, with the team leader being an engineering student. Students from other disciplines, e.g. business, can also be included. However, we strongly prefer that the majority of the team is engineering students. Teams from a single university (e.g. Team USC) or from a partnership of universities (e.g. Team New York), or across the three countries (US, UK, China), are all acceptable. Students who will be graduating in Spring 2015 are permitted to participate on a team as long as they can attend the final competition in September 2015 if their team is selected a finalist.
