Judges are a critical part of the engineering Design EXPO experience for University of Idaho senior design students. The interaction between students and judges create opportunities for students to gain new insights and to learn about engineering career paths and the workforce in general.
Judging opportunities are available for booth exhibits and technical presentations. Booth judges examine up to 10 entries where technical presentation judges attend 5 technical presentations.
Judging takes place 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, April 28, 2017 after orientation by a member of our EXPO capstone faculty.
Judges spend approximately two to three hours reviewing design products, processes and team communication. Judge assessments serve as the basis for the EXPO Awards Ceremony held at the end of the day.
All judges are invited to the Dean's EXPO Preview Reception on Thursday, April 27 in the Pitman Student Center (formerly the Student Union Building) where you will have the opportunity to preview EXPO by meeting our students, capstone faculty advisors, staff and other judges. Reminders and details regarding the reception will be provided.
Judges are provided a complimentary breakfast and lunch as well as free parking for the day.
