The 2018 Senior Design Awards Dinner was held on May 4th inside the Cox Pavilion at UNLV. The event offered an opportunity for family, friends, and the Las Vegas community to celebrate the accomplishments of each team for their innovative designs and tremendous work. Over forty teams participated in this year’s competition, and nearly 600 attendees supported them at the awards dinner, making it our largest event ever!

The Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering would like to extend a big congratulations to all of our winning teams!
