Established in 2006, the Systems Engineering Award provides an opportunity for university student teams to obtain first-hand experience applying NASA’s best engineering practices. Coupled with the ability to interact with NASA engineers, this prestigious competition engages students in the real-world systems engineering process that is not always taught in engineering programs. Our company designed and produced this 4-inch medallion using translucent blue enamel paint to provide a contrasting backdrop for the featured objects. To further enhance the award’s significance, it was presented in a custom cherry wood box, inside of which was a custom wood insert sized to proudly display the medallion.
