Technology evolves so quickly that it’s sometimes a good idea to take a step back to better understand the next level of a product. More and more, engineers are invited to enhance and optimize what seem to be mundane products around us.

In this competition, participants are given a relevant design that is required to be re-engineered under a new set of constraints. After these details are revealed, teams will have six hours to fabricate a design and presentation. Teams are required to take into account all relevant aspects of the engineering process such as material availability, finances, and so on. A panel of judges will assess each team’s design based on practicality, originality, feasibility, and marketability.

Competitors in all years of studies are eligible for participation.
