 In the Innovative Design competition competitors bring an independent project that they develop outside the competition, including but not limited to capstone projects. Each team presents a professional-level presentation to a panel of judges, which demonstrates the technical, social, environmental, and economic impact of their design. Each design should test the boundaries of current engineering practices, in a justifiable and logical manner. The competitors will be judged on the originality and creativity of their idea, the quality of their presentation, and the tenability of their design process.

Team Size: Up to 4

Eligibility: Competitors in all years of engineering studies are eligible for participation, including students who have graduated no more than 1 year prior to the date of the competition.
