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.

Industry partners and UC Davis College of Engineering alumni are invited to attend and see first-hand the work of our students. As an evaluator, 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 similar to what they will find during their careers. 

Visit the Evaluator Information webpage to learn more. To serve as an evaluator, please fill out the Volunteer Form by Wednesday, May 15.
