These teams recruit students from various departments in engineering as well as other faculties such as commerce, business and arts. Previous experience is not always required; this is the opportunity for you to learn and develop skills to become true experts in your field of study.  Check out all of the teams here, or contact them through the form below.


How can I meet the teams?

Every September, there are 2 major opportunities to explore the teams during the first week of classes. First, on Tuesday, September 4 2018 all the teams set up along Main Mall near the Cairn for Imagine Day Second, during Engineering Week E^0 the design teams host a midday open house for students to learn more. If you’re considering joining a team, these are perfect opportunities to find out which team is the best fit for you.

If you are not sure which team to join, feel free to email the Design Team Coordinator at for assistance.
