2020 Engineering Design Showcase Program | 2020 UC Davis Now App (Guidebook)2020 Engineering Design Showcase Teaser

The Engineering Design Showcase is the culminating experience for graduating seniors. A senior design experience is required for all students in an engineering major. Teams complete a capstone project in which they design and prototype a product, device, process, or software system. This event brings together project teams from all eight departments for an opportunity to share student designs with the public. Also attending the event will be invited guests from industry partners and donors. These guests serve as reviewers who provide expert feedback to student teams on their exhibits and project demonstrations.

Engineering students enrolled in a senior design course or who participate on a design project/team are eligible to participate in this event. Specific information about presenting during this event will be distributed through your course instructor or adviser. Additional details about event logistics will be emailed to team members in spring quarter. The Dean’s Office will cover the cost of one poster printing for participating teams.


We invite industry partners and UC Davis College of Engineering alumni who would like to see first-hand the work of our students to join us as evaluators. As part of your 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 similar to what they will find during their careers.
