The purpose of the contest is to get engineering students to submit a video about design engineering. By submitting a video on the YouTube Contest Page, you are agreeing to place your video online for public viewing. All entries will be screened for appropriateness and those deemed ineligible will be removed immediately. Each submission must be related to design engineering. Creativity and presentation skills will be taken into consideration.
Participants are encouraged to do their own research and put together a convincing case. The contest’s objective is to foster a greater understanding of the place of engineering design in the world, so that students become aware of what design engineering offers them in their studies and in the real world.
