Engineering Fair: Going Beyond the Classroom
Engineering Fair is an event where all engineering students at Taylor’s University School of Engineering present their final design for their project publicly. At the fair, these projects are evaluated not only from the technical perspective, but also for the effectiveness how key facts about the project are delivered within a limited time. Judges are from both academic and the industry. The score each team received during the engineering fair will contribute to 10% of their design module score. In this chapter, the rationale for having engineering fair as part of the design module and its assessment criteria are discussed.
