Industry Simulation Education (InSimEd) is the organization that runs Design Competitions in North America.

We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, proudly run, staffed, and operated by volunteers.

The InSimEd board comprises educators, competition alumni, and professional engineers, all of whom aim to provide a better education experience for students. 


We often get asked why we do what we do.

The answer is simple: we believe that students need to learn what it's like to operate in industry (the real-world), long before they get there.

Our events are designed to give students a challenging environment in which to learn the practical realities of various STEM-related fields, all the while supported by industry professionals that students can network with and learn from.

We connect student's aspirations for the future to their studies today.
