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

A total of 26 teams will be competing in this capstone competition which challenges students to create a practical, real-world solution to an engineering or computer science 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 (May 7th and May 8th) in a virtual meeting, with 10 minutes set aside for Q&A.

The public is encouraged to view team projects and cast their vote for Popular Choice. Team abstracts and posters, and a voting ballot can be accessed between Monday, May 4th and Saturday, May 9th.

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