Show off your project and presentation skills!

The Pitch Up! Competition provides undergraduate aerospace engineering students with the opportunity to showcase their technical work and receive feedback on their presentation skills.

Based on the 3MT Competition, the Pitch Up! Competition challenges you to describe a technical project you've contributed to in three minutes with a chance to win cash prizes!

Create a single slide presentation describing your project, and prepare a three minute pitch describing your work in layman's terms.


Check back in the fall for information on the next Pitch Up! competition.


Your presentation can be over any technical project you were involved in. Individual projects, including research, honors credit or a class project that went above and beyond, are admissible. Team projects (SAE, SRT, SFTE, out-of-department organizations etc.), hackathon projects, 401/402 design projects, AggiE Challenge work and class group projects are allowable as well, but you must focus on your specific contribution. Multiple submissions per team project are allowed. Submissions must be three minutes or less.

Each presentation must address the following:
  • Problem definition
  • Approach and/or design methodology
  • Achieved or expected outcomes
  • Understandable to non-experts in the field
  • Quality of supporting side
  • Quality of pitch content
  • Quality of pitch delivery


  • Open to all aerospace engineering undergraduate students
  • Supporting slide submissions must be in PDF format
  • Submissions must be individual
    • Multiple members of a team may submit individual presentations
  • All presentations will be judged by a mixed faculty and staff panel
  • Presentations are three minutes with two minutes for questions
