Consulting Photo (OEC 2018).jpg

In this competition, students are presented with an engineering problem and must develop and present a logical solution to the ‘client’ (a.k.a. the judging panel), which demonstrate an awareness and consideration of the social, environmental, technological, and economic impact of the proposed solution. As the nature of consulting services spans a wide variety of industries, it is recommended that teams have multidisciplinary members, but is not necessary for success in the competition. Each team will be judged based on an original design, an analysis and understanding of the client’s needs, and a demonstrated effort to optimize the proposed solution.

Team Size: Up to 4

Eligibility: Competitors in all years of engineering studies are eligible for participation.
