The International Design Engineering Technical Conferences, sponsored by ASME, were held the first week of September 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference is attended annually by approximately 1,000 engineers from the industry and academia. The CMR lab was represented at the conference by five ME professors and 15 students or recent graduates from the program. Students took part by presenting papers and participating in the ASME Mechanism Design Competition. The BYU team was excited to bring home three awards (see related stories).
