SMART Registration Process

Student Team Registration is required of all participating teams.   Every team must have an educator/academic leader or educational program leader who has responsibility for coordinating team(s) activities.  On the registration page you will identify your School, Club or Group and provide key contact information for the Team.  An educator must also be listed.  It is not necessary to provide team member names at this time.  

After completing the competition registration the team will be provided information on how to access the Bentley Student Server and the competition software. 

A school or qualified educational program may register multiple teams.

Engineers or Mentors are needed to work with the teams to guide the students’ efforts by providing subject matter knowledge, design support and overall project guidance. They should be technical professionals who are not necessarily experts in all things related to the competition but who can provide advice and guidance to the students to help them succeed.

Take part in the movement to grow the future infrastructure design and engineering professionals of tomorrow.  Share your professional and education experiences by serving as a mentor.

Mentors are professionals who will work with the teams to guide their efforts by providing subject matter knowledge, design support and overall project guidance. The mentor’s efforts will contribute to the direction and success of each team’s project and student growth.

 Be Mentor as together we strive...

Being involved as a judge can be a rewarding and challenging endeavor. As either a Competition judge or Sponsored Award judge, participants are tasked with evaluating each team’s deliverables against the applicable set of guidelines or scoring criteria.
Sponsored Award Judge: Each sponsoring organization will establish its own award criteria.  Judges for these awards will be selected and certified by the sponsoring organization.  All judges must meet Smart Competition requirements.
