This semester’s Fred & Harriet Cox Senior Design Competition is once again 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 projects based on criteria including innovation, commercial potential, presentation quality, and sustainability. Teams will present to the judges 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. A link to project abstracts and posters will be posted prior to voting commencing.

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