Student Design Competition
The Illinois Water Environment Association (IWEA) is hosting a Student Design Competition (SDC) at the state level. The competition will be held during IWEA’s annual Illinois Wastewater Professionals Conference, April 10 - 12, 2023. The winner of this competition will receive a cash prize, a travel allowance, and the opportunity to compete in the national SDC at WEFTEC2023 in Chicago!
The IWEA SDC is intended to promote a “real world” design experience for students interested in pursuing an education and/or career in wastewater, water resources and environmental engineering. This competition tasks teams to design a problem statement and present a project solution meeting the requirements of the problem that they have worked on as a team. This competition is intended for both undergraduate and graduate students. Students who are completing a capstone project or a design course can use that work as a submission, as well.
