UPADI's Student Design Paper Competition offers a unique opportunity for undergraduate engineering students to showcase their engineering aptitude and dexterity in design.
This one-of-a-kind design competition provides students with a valuable opportunity to establish networking contacts and develop relationships with esteemed industry professionals.
Students must adhere to the following guidelines when submitting papers for the competition:
Papers must focus on an engineering design problem or topic similar to that in a senior capstone design class. Following are some example topics:
