UVic Engineering Competition (UVEC)

UVEC is the qualifying event for the Western Engineering Competition (WEC), being hosted in January 2019 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Find more details on WEC:



Senior Design – Teams of 4

Teams of four third or fourth year students are given six to eight hours to design and construct a working prototype from given materials that can solve an engineering challenge. This challenge tests the competitors’ technical skills, as well as time management and teamwork. Teams present their solutions to judges using real-world justifications, then test the prototype according to the given functional requirements. Judging criteria will be based on students’ demonstration of technical electrical, mechanical, and software knowledge.

Junior Design – Teams of 4

This competition challenges junior (first or second year) engineering students to design and build a prototype to address a technical problem. The Junior Team Design category is similar to that of Senior Team Design. However, with emphasis on prototype functionality rather and design theory.

Communications – Teams of 2

Teams of two are asked to describe a technical subject in lay-man’s terms. They must consider the economic and environmental aspects of their subject, and provide a persuasive conclusion regarding the potential benefits, risks, or effect their subject has on the world.…
