About the Competition
Each April, CECS invites all senior design teams to participate in a poster competition as part of the Experiential Learning Celebration event. At this competition, each senior design team presents their project to a team of professional engineer judges in a poster format.

Senior Design Guidelines
The objectives of the Senior Design projects are to:
Demonstrate the students’ ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
Connect curricular knowledge to engineering design principles in order to generate solutions that address needs within the realms of public health, safety, and welfare taking into consideration global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
Engender utilization of a team approach to problem identification and solution generation.
Allow students to be more effective in identifying emerging technologies that are having major impact in their field of study.
Employ project management tools in the planning, review and implementation of design projects.
Demonstrate the ability to communicate their design concepts and solutions, orally, graphically and in writing.
Promote cross disciplinary projects and teamwork within the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
- All teams enrolled in a senior design course are invited to participate.
- Poster title and registration are typically due in early March.
- Posters are typically due mid-April.
- For the 2021 event, each team will present their posters to judges in a virtual format.
The highest scoring team from each department will receive departmental awards. The next four highest scoring teams will receive the college-wide awards. The innovation award is sponsored by the Alumni Affiliate Council and granted to the team with the highest innovation score. However, in the event of a tie, the final selection will be made by a team of alumni affiliates.
