Undergraduate Design Portfolio Contest

The annual Undergraduate Design Portfolio Contest is open to all undergraduate and LEAP students (Phase 1) in the College of Engineering. The goal of the contest is to promote design and to showcase the importance of design skills in engineering. Additionally and perhaps even most importantly, the goal of the contest is to encourage students to create a design portfolio, as it can be a powerful tool in obtaining an internship or job in industry.

Material in portfolios should be anything that displays creative engineering work and skills. This could be from classwork, personal projects, internships, etc.

In order to encourage student participation in the contest, one or two  Portfolio Workshops are held annually.  At this workshop, students will be shown past winners’ portfolios in order to generate ideas on how to construct a design portfolio. Questions will be answered on how best to display work.

The deadline for 2016 portfolio submission is 3:30pm on Friday, April 15th. Portfolios can be dropped off at the Mechanical Engineering administration office or emailed to Stacy McKenna at stacymck@bu.edu.
