Sign Up Now to Attend the 2024 Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge Final Competitions

There is still time to register for April’s Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge Final Competitions. We need industry attendees to judge all aspects of the final competitions: the races, final presentations and vehicle design reviews. Industry attendees also participate in exclusive networking opportunities to recruit the next generation of talented engineers. Please register by March 1st.

Norgren will host the first event on April 10-12 in Littleton, Colorado, and Danfoss Power Solutions will host the second competition on April 24-26 in Ames, Iowa.

22 universities are participating this year, including all seven NFPA Power Partner Universities: Cleveland State University, Iowa State University, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Murray State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Northern Illinois University and Purdue University. There are also two new universities participating. Recommended for the program by a member company, Minnesota State University Mankato’s Twin Cities Engineering team is participating for the first time. Another newcomer is SUNY Polytechnic, a part of the New York university system. They joined the program thanks to a job change by an existing FPVC university advisor. We’re excited to see what these new teams can do!

To learn more about the Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge, visit the NFPA Foundation website.

While participation in the Vehicle Challenge is typically reserved for Pascal Society donors, all NFPA members are invited to participate once. This is a chance for you to explore the program and discover the many advantages of becoming a Pascal Society donor. The list of current Pascal Society Donors is available on our website.

*A workforce representative will send you the registration link for the FPVC Final Competitions via email.
