Engineering Design Symposium

Designing a better future

The UNB Engineering Design Symposium is an annual event where final-year engineering students showcase their designs and prototypes to the community. More than half of the projects are sponsored by external clients where students are mentored by practicing engineers.

Student projects from each department are presented during the annual symposium.
