4th Annual Penny Wars competition between the individual schools of engineering. Hosted last year as part of the Mechanical Engineering Recess Revival. Proceeds go to the United Way.
Penny war rules are based on coins being worth positive points, bills being worth an equivalent amount of negative points – i.e. a dime is 10 points, a five dollar bill is -500 points. The winning discipline receives the rotating trophy currently housed in the Mechanical Engineering building.

Did you know that, outside the industrial exception, only licensed Professional Engineers(PEs) can practice engineering by law? Well the Purdue Society of Professional Engineers will be hosting an information session Monday, February 20th at 6:15 in ARMS1010 with all the information you need.
