Sponsored by the Merrill L. Ebner Fund, the annual Engineering Design Portfolio Contest is open to all students 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.
Winners are selected in the following categories and are awarded prizes in the amount of: Best Senior ($500), Best Graduate Student ($500), Best Junior ($400), Best Sophomore ($250), Best FYS ($100). An additional prize of $500 is awarded to the student with the Best Overall Portfolio!
If you need some help getting started with your design portfolio or polishing it up, or want some tips from our past winners, join us for these events!
