GlobeTech simulation development takes place in the spring and summer
prior to the fall semesters simulation. Development includes
the selection by the professor of two simulation topics (or more,
if there are many teams) based on important current technical issues
and the creation by selected students of the simulation website with
scenario, schedule and links to various research and information sites.

During this time engineering schools from around the world are invited
to participate as a team in the simulation.
of the Requests for Proposals occurs at the beginning of the simulation
by the designated student team.
