York Engineering Competition
Jan 10, 2014 to Jan 11, 2014
The York Engineering Society proudly presents the York Engineering Competition 2014 (YEC2014).
YEC is an annual competition hosted at York U that puts engineering students to the test through a rigorous overnight competition between teams of four to design, build, test and present a solution to a problem faced by today’s society. It is the definition of taking all the hard work you did in class and applying it to real life. YEC consists of two phases – a building phase and a presentation phase. In the building phase, teams are presented with a problem and have a set amount of time (usually about four to six hours) to validate, design, build and implement a solution. During this phase you can only test your solution very few times against the demo set. The second phase consists of solution presentations and demonstrations by the teams before a panel of judges. You will be given a time of 10 to 15 minutes to professionally present your solution, why it works, how it works and what you can do to improve it. Then your solution will be put to the test against the demo set.
In addition to a complimentary prize, the winning teams of YEC get an expenses-paid exclusive trip to the Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC2014), where they will represent York in a province-wide competition against all other engineering-accredited schools. The winners of OEC get a cash prize of up to $5,000 to go onto the Canadian Engineering Competition ( CEC 2012) to represent Ontario. The winners of CEC get to go onto an international competition to represent Canada.
