Competitors will be given a real-world problem and must work within time and budget constraints to design, create, and test a physical prototype of their proposed solution. This competition is for first and second year students, so concepts will be based off a general level of engineering knowledge.
Competitors will combine their creativity and knowledge to develop new technological designs or improve upon existing ones. Projects are developed prior to the competition and are presented alongside a visual display to the judges at CEC.
Competitors will describe an applicable process or issue of their choice and present a coherent argument that clearly identifies its social, economical, technological, and environmental impacts.
Competitors aim to display their fluency and versatility in a programming language of their choice by creating software that solves a given engineering problem. Each team will present their solution and provide a live demonstration to judges.
Competitors will be given a real-world problem and must work within time and budget constraints to design, create, and test a physical prototype of their proposed solution. This competition is for third and fourth year students, so concepts that will be tested can span a variety of disciplines.
Competitors must redesign an existing product or process to either improve its functionality or to adapt it for a completely new purpose. They will be judged based on functionality, practicality, feasibility, and marketability.
Competitors will defend or refute a previously undisclosed resolution in parliamentary debate format with only 10 minutes of preparation time. Competitors will be tested on their knowledge of a wide range of engineering concepts and on their ability to present arguments in a concise and convincing manner.
Competitors are given a real-world problem found in industry. They will need to develop a solution and convince the panel of judges that their solution is optimal and practical.
