Undergraduate Design Contest

The PAES launches this year’s Undergraduate Engineering Design Contest (UEDC) – a biennial activity meant to enhance design thinking among Engineering students in PAES member Schools, and to create a dynamic research environment within PAES that, in the long-term, will benefit its partner industries.  The Design Contest also fosters Technopreneurship where students are encouraged to come up with practical engineering solution to problems via their designs with potential for commercialization.
