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.
