Engineering Senior Design Competition

Semi-annual event showcases students' best work


Next scheduled event:
Friday, December 15, 2017
9 - 11:30 a.m.
North Classroom Atrium | Auraria Campus
What is it?

In their final year of engineering curriculum, students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science take a Senior Design class that provides an important design experience that is the culmination of the knowledge and skills they have learned. It is the first time in the curriculum that engineering students formally learn about such things as solving a problem for someone else, design tradeoffs, cost and budgeting, documentation of process and product, scheduling tasks with lead time, and experiencing all sorts of human factors involved in teamwork. Each semester the college holds a competition where industry judges select top projects and teams for recognition. Everyone is invited to attend and to see the amazing work of our students.
