This semester's Fred & Harriet Cox Senior Design Competition is taking place virtually!

Engineering and computer science students will compete in this capstone competition which challenges students to create a practical solution to a real-world challenge.

A panel of industry experts will grade designs based on criteria including innovation, commercial potential, presentation quality, and sustainability. Teams will present to the judges over a two-day period (December 16th and 17th) in a virtual meeting with 10 minutes set aside for Q&A.

The public is encouraged to participate by reviewing projects and casting their vote for Popular Choice. Project abstracts and posters can be viewed on our Fall 2020 Senior Design Projects page.

Cash prizes are given out to the winners of each department and category award, including Popular Choice.

Visit our Fred & Harriet Cox Senior Design web page for more information on the competition.
