CEN 100 Student Design Competition 

First-year engineering students will have a chance to enter in their first university engineer competition through the CEN 100 course. This yearly competition challenges students to reverse engineer on a theme idea selected for that year enabling them to think creatively as they redesign an existing product either to improve upon its current functionality or to modify it for a new purpose. Teams of up to 12 first-year engineering students are given three weeks to come up with an idea, an innovative solution, and develop their pitch presentation. The top eight teams will then be entered into the final stage of the competition where expert judges will determine the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winning teams.
