Fall 2018's Engineering & Design I challenge is to design and build a "Teddy Bear Wheelchair" to compete in the School of Engineering Soccer World Cup.  Representing countries from around the world, 380 engineering students on 81 multidisciplinary teams compete in the "speed dribble" and "free-kick" events.  Prospective students were able to watch teams test out their designs on the competition field on November 11 at Science and Engineering Sunday.  The final project competition is held in the Atrium November 19th to 23rd.
