Innovative Design

Engineering students are cornucopias of new and fresh ideas, bringing a clean pair of eyes to any newly identified gaps in technology or already existing processes. With this different perspective in mind, students are able to develop innovative engineering solutions.

Competitors aim to develop new technological designs or improve upon existing ones, through competent research, planning, and execution of a concept. The ideas they develop are done outside of the competition. Each team presents a professional-level presentation to a panel of judges, which demonstrates the technical, social, environmental, and economic impact of their design. Each design should test the boundaries of current engineering practices, in a justifiable and logical manner. The competitors will be judged on the originality and creativity of their idea, the quality of their presentation, and the tenability of their design process.

Competitors in all years of engineering studies are eligible for participation.
