The Queen’s Engineering Competition aims to inspire excellence through competition within the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Delegates are invited to a conference style case competition and are asked to select one of eight challenges of the type engineers encounter every day. This opportunity to take our skills outside of the classroom shows ourselves and our industry partners the competence and creativity we all hold within us. QEC aims to offer challenges that are multi-disciplinary and accessible to all years, disciplines, and individuals within FEAS. We are a team of dedicated students committed to embodying the best virtues of our peers and enabling them to do the same; we are Queen’s Eng.

Junior & Senior Design
APSC 100 taught you to tackle design problems, but can you do it in 4 hours? This challenge gives you a lightning round in designing, prototyping and presenting a solution. Whether you are new to the game or an experienced hand the two levels of this challenge will require your A-game
Smooth talk your way through presentations? Take a step up with an in-depth problem you will not only have to find a compelling solution for, but sell to a practicing engineering consultant.
MATLAB and C wasn't enough for you? Think you're the next Steve Wozniak? Show us. This competion gives you full creative freedom to create the best solution with computer wizardy and energy drinks at your disposal.
For those of you whom have mastered the art of the answering the question at family holiday 'What do you do in school again?', take a try putting together an argument for an engineering problem readily understood by the public
Be the creator of the best thing since sliced bread! Let your mind roam free and draw up the solution to the open-ended problem based on the competition's yearly theme
Not many engineers know this but the Queen's Debating Union is older (better) than the AMS, they also started it... If you are a former or current debater give your argumentative side some exercise with some good ol' fashioned technology focused debates
We all go through first year calculus to learn about optimization; switch gears from functions to gadgets or processes in this competition
Sign-up information will be made available for delegates this October, with the conference following on November 23rd & 24th. Mark your calendars and check this website and our social media for updates!
