2008 - present
The competition has grown from the initial vision of the AEI Board with the hard work of Mohammed Ettouney and Amar Chaker in 2008 to develop a program and acquire funding. The Charles Pankow Foundation generously granted ASCE full funding for the first three years of the competition. The competition now has approximately 11 corporate sponsors. It is exciting to see how this competition has grown and is continuing to "Raise the Bar" in Architectural Engineering education.
