The Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) is an opportunity for Ontario's brightest students to practice their engineering skills in 1 of 7 engineering disciplines; junior design, senior design, consulting, debate, communications, innovation, programming. Each participating school sends teams to compete in 7 parallel competitions for 3 days from January 27-29, 2017. The event features 16 universities and over 300 competitors who have proven themselves at their respective universities.
To represent their universities at the Ontario Engineering Competition, students must first win their universities internal competitions. The winner of the OEC has the opportunity the represent Ontario at the Canadian Engineering Competition in March 2017.
Carleton University has the pleasure of hosting the 38th annual OEC in 2017. We hope to see you there, from January 27-29, 2017.
First and second year engineering students are given a problem that will require them to develop an innovative and practical solution. They will be evaluated on their design, application, teamwork .
Third and fourth year engineering students are given a more advanced problem that will require them to develop an innovative and practical solution. They will be evaluated on their design, application, teamwork .
Competitors are challenged to create a solution to a problem that accounts for environmental, economical, technological and societal impacts.
Competitors will be given a time constraint to develop an argument based on an assigned subject which they will be asked to support or counter.
Competitors must prepare a presentation explaining the environmental, economical, technological and societal impacts of their selected topic. The presentation should cater to an audience that contains a variety of technological backgrounds.
Teams are tasked with creating a new technological design or revisit one that requires development. The proposals will be judged based on their originality and practicality.
Teams are challenged to construct industry-quality software that solves the given problem.
