UCSB Engineering Design Fair and Showcase


Every year, the Capstone Design Project program offers senior undergraduates throughout the College of Engineering the opportunity to work in teams to solve real-world problems over the course of their senior year at UCSB. Many of these projects are developed in collaboration with industry partners or UCSB research labs. At our Design Fair & Showcase, the student teams all present and demo their final products and showcase their creativity and hard work. A panel of judges composed of Faculty and Industry Leaders evaluate the projects and select top teams for awards. Information about each of the projects can be found here.

Event Details for Wednesday, June 7, 2017:

2:00-4:00pm - Senior Project Design Fair

Student teams from Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineering will be displaying posters and presenting final prototypes of their full year senior design projects. During this time, a panel of judges will be reviewing all the projects and selecting award winners.

4:00-5:00pm - Engineering Design Showcase

This exciting on-stage event will have a TED talk feel. Multidisciplinary design teams will present their work products.
