2020 SAE Aero Design Pre-Registration Information
The Collegiate Design Series (CDS) staff has implemented Pre-Registration for the Top 3 teams in each class at 2019 SAE Aero Design East (Forth Worth, TX) and 2019 SAE Aero Design West (Van Nuys, CA) as well as the winners of the onsite raffle at either 2019 SAE Aero Design competition.

There will be three key registration windows for the 2020 SAE Aero Design competitions:

• Pre-Registration Window will be open Monday, October 7th at 08:00 AM EDT – Monday, October 14th at 9:00 AM EDT.

• Registration Window 1 will be open Monday, October 14th at 10:00 AM EDT – Sunday, October 27th at 11:59 PM EDT.

• Registration Window 2 will be open Monday, October 28th at 10:00 AM EDT – Wednesday, November 27th at 11:59 PM EDT.

If a university placed Top 3 in any class during the 2019 season in multiple events or won a Pre-Registration Pass at any 2019 SAE Aero Design competition, they CAN pre-register for multiple events only in the class in which the qualify for Pre-Registration.

If a university pre-registers for only one event in their eligible class, they will be unable to register for a second event until Registration Window 2 in that same class. Other classes in the university will be able to register without restriction. Therefore, the ONLY way that a university can enter Registration Window 1 with two competitions secured in the same class, is if they earn two pre-registration slots for the same class (2019 Top 3 or onsite raffle).

In Registration Window 2, any university can register at any competition in any class they’ve not yet registered for without any restriction assuming it is not sold out. If a university earns one or more pre-registration pass(es) and wishes to NOT take advantage of this opportunity, they can forfeit their pass(es) and enter Registration Window 1 with no restrictions.

Due to a cooperation agreement with SAE International affiliate society SAE Brasil, no qualifying Brazilian universities will be permitted pre-register for any US-based 2020 SAE Aero Design competitions. The only way these teams will be able to compete is if they are selected by their affiliate society. In the case that a 2019 Top 3 SAE Aero Design finisher is selected to attend the corresponding 2020 SAE Aero Design competition, their Top 3 number will be reserved for them.

If your team believes you should be eligible for Pre-Registration based on the criteria (2019 Top 3 Finisher or 2019 onsite raffle winner) but do not see your university listed, contact [email protected]
