Support ENG 3 Design Showcase – December 13, 2018 (RSVP by November 30!)

ENG 3  – Introduction to Engineering Design is a 4-unit communication elective offered to over 140 College of Engineering undergraduates. Student teams have been diligently applying their engineering design, technology and communication skills to address “problems looking for a solution” on the UC Davis Student Farm.

We are very excited about their work thus far and look forward to sharing their project outcomes, including final prototypes and posters, at the ENG 3 Design Showcase to be held on Thursday, December 13 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. in Kemper Hall Lobby and Room 1065. The first 18 teams will present from 3:45 to 4:30 p.m., and the other 18 teams will present from 4:45 to 5:30 p.m. 

Alumni are invited to attend one or both sessions to show support for students’ work and provide feedback on thier communication and design skills. Please RSVP by November 30 using the online availability form.


Serve as Evaluator for Engineering Design Showcase – June 6, 2019

The Engineering Design Showcase is the culminating experience for graduating seniors. This event brings together project teams from all eight departments for an opportunity to share student designs with the public.

Alumni engineers and industry partners are invited to attend and see first-hand the work of our students. As part of attendance, you will be asked to provide specific feedback to a small number of teams as well as discuss the design process with team members. We hope to provide students with an opportunity to practice “pitching” their ideas in a setting not unlike they will find during their careers. 

Please save the date – June 6, 2019 – and contact Molly Bechtel to RSVP or receive more information. A registration form will launch in January 2019.
