About the Competition

Participants will compete in teams of 3-5 to conceptualize, design, build, and communicate a solution to a real world engineering design challenge in a ‘hackathon’ format.

The Judging Teams will consist of professors, recent engineering graduates, and professionals currently working in industry.

In addition to the design competition, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend a keynote design presentation from esteemed University of Toronto Engineering Faculty
  • Attend an “engineering opportunities” fair at lunch with student groups from U of T Engineering & industry
  • Meet an array of current engineering student “mentors” from all disciplines. They are on call to answer any and all questions you may have related to studying engineering at U of T!
