    Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) Prize

    The AIAA Materials Technical Committee (TC) with the support of Composite Design and Manufacturing HUB (cdmHUB), NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and Rolls-Royce Corporation funding have established an ICME prize for the best aerospace-focused ICME project


    This contest is open to any person or person(s) regardless of gender, race, nationality or organization.
