About the Competition:

Each year the senior class of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Dalhousie University take part in a required design course. In this course, students are required to select a topic and prepare a proposal, including a work program, for a project to be undertaken under the supervision of a faculty member and an industrial advisor. The final part of this course is a presentation of their work to the faculty and industrial advisors. Based on the marks received on these presentations, the top three projects are selected to compete in the IEEE Paper Competition.

As this year there are only five teams working on projects, it was decided to combine the student paper competition with the senior year project final presentation. So now the student groups will not only be presenting to their supervisors for grades in their course, but will also be being judged by the student paper competition judging panel. The judges are local IEEE members who work in various industries in the province. The top three winning projects will be honored with awards from the IEEE Canadian Atlantic Section and the first place group will be invited to present their work at the Canadian National IEEE paper competition.

All members of the Canadian Atlantic Section and members of the general public are invited to attend. Please come out and show your support for our future engineers.
