Design competition Mechanical Engineering

17 June 2020 09:00 till 16:30 - Location: Mekelpark, Delft

The assignment for the 2020 Design Competition has been announced. Approximately 88 student teams of around six first-year students are challenged to design a package dolly.

The package dog must offer a solution for the increasingly heavier packages. The students will start designing, building and testing this product for the next 20 weeks.


Ambitious design requirements are set for the package dolly. The package dolly will have to move on its own and follow a course with manual guidance. The trail is a rough terrain and contains various obstacles. A walking, crawling, jumping or other mechanism may be a better choice than moving on wheels.
