Out of all 8 teams, two McMaster teams qualified for the Canadian Engineering Competitions! Both the Innovative Design team and Consulting team won second place, and will be competing again later this month at CEC 2018 at Ryerson University!

McMaster Engineering students qualified for the Ontario Engineering Competition by winning the McMaster Engineering Competition (MEC) back in October of last year. If you would like to be a part of this experience next year, be sure to sign up for the MEC 2018! This two day competition at McMaster engages students to solve problems in eight different categories, and the winners get a free ticket to represent McMaster provincially.

Thank you to the University of Ottawa for hosting a great competition. McMaster will be hosting the 2019 Ontario Engineering Competition! To participate, make sure you compete in the McMaster Engineering Competition later this fall.
