Subject: Drone Contest: Apply Now
The University of Maryland (UMD) has received a generous gift from the Brin
Family to support a contest that will result in prizes for excellence in
drone-related activity and inspire UMD students, faculty and staff engaged in
research, competitions and activities involving unmanned aerial vehicles.
The contest, which calls for proficiencies in computer science and aerospace,
is open to all UMD faculty, staff and students. Those who apply will be
selected to participate based on the merits of the project they describe (for
example, the project’s main objective, technical aspects and how it might
benefit society). Applicants will also be required to explain what the
personal and professional impact of winning the prize would mean to them.
Submitted projects will be evaluated and judged by a committee of experts in
the fields of computer science and aerospace engineering. The deadline for
applications is April 16, 2018 and contest finalists will be notified by
April, 30, 2018. Those selected as finalists must be available on May 10,
2018 to present their projects to the committee.
