Design Day 2016
The objective of Design Day is to showcase engineering design projects and celebrate the achievements of uOttawa engineering students. It is an opportunity for students to exhibit their design projects and compete for awards. Design projects are prevalent in the Engineering curriculum, and all of our academic engineering programs are represented at the event.
All students (undergraduate and graduate) in the Faculty of Engineering are invited to participate and showcase their design projects. These can be a class project, a research project or a personal project from either an individual student or a team.
The first place winner of will be awarded $500, second place $300, third place $200 and $500 will be awarded for the best entrepreneurial project. Best of all, Design Day brings together industry professionals, families, friends, faculties and students!
The Second Annual Design Day will be held in March 2017 for the 2016-2017 academic year. Stay tuned for more details on 2017 Design Day!
