Professor Michael Rall adopted the contest as part of his senior-level design studio curriculum to introduce his students to real-world applications and to allow his students the freedom to research and refine their design process to fit the current market. This also allows students the opportunity to have their work reviewed by an outside entity.

Now accepting entries for Mockett’s 33rd Annual Design Competition. For more information on entering, visit https://www.mockett.com/design-competition Deadline: September 4, 2018.
