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.
Competitors are asked to describe to the public a technical engineering problem and present it in a way that is readily understood by the public or clarify an engineering issue that is typically misunderstood or biased.
Opportunity for competitors have full autonomy over the topic they choose by bringing in independent projects that have been developed outside the competition either individually or in teams. The projects are presented professionally to a panel of judges.
This competition provides an opportunity for Juniors to exercise their critical thinking, design ideas, and express themselves creatively. It is an opportunity to design a solution to a real-world problem start to finish, ending with a professional presentation.

Competitors aim to develop industry-quality software to solve a given engineering problem. Their software is presented, highlighting efficiency, user-friendly interfaces, and practicality.
Competitors will be presented a real-world engineering problem and must design a detailed theoretical solution to be proposed to the client. Using their technical knowledge and skills, competitors must consider the economic, environmental, political, and social implications of their solution.
Competitors develop a convincing and coherent argument to an assigned resolution. Competitors must have a wide range of knowledge to develop concise arguments in this Parliamentary style debate.
Competitors are asked to re-designanexisting engineering processor product in a new and creative way. Designs are judged on feasibility, creativity, and environmental impacts.
