There is no such thing as too much design exposure for engineering students beginning their studies. The Junior Design competition aims to provide students with a unique opportunity to develop a basic engineering design and construct an accompanying prototype, while presenting their solutions to peers and industry professionals from across the province.
Competitors must work within limiting time and budget constraints to design, create, and test a physical prototype of their proposed solution. As the competitors are just beginning their engineering studies, concepts will be based off a general level of engineering knowledge, such as forces, mechanics, etc. Although it is recommended that teams are multidisciplinary, it is not necessary for success in the competition. Each team will be judged based on their design, application, teamwork, and performance, with regards to both their prototype and presentation.
Competitors must be in the first two (2) years of engineering studies in order to be eligible for participation.
