Solidworks Design Contest
The purpose of the contest is to familiarize students with 3D modelling in Solidworks and the engineering design process, and to provide a platform for students to exercise their creativity. Participants with the best entries will be invited to present their model and briefly describe their design process to a judge panel consisting of experienced alumni and professors.
