About the EXPO

The CEAS EXPO is for senior engineering students to showcase all they have learned through their undergraduate classes and co-op experiences over the past five years. These students have worked for the past year developing their final capstone project and are excited to present it to you and the professional community. We are excited to offer opportunities for companies and individuals to get involved with and experience the EXPO.

As a sponsor, you will not only be able to network with these accomplished students but the underclassmen who will soon be in their shoes too. We expect to have an equal number of first through fourth-year students in attendance to network with you and observe the senior presentations. There are various tiers and associated benefits to meet the needs of anyone interested in participating, and you can learn more about them below.

As an individual judge, you will be provided with a rubric and will be asked to judge projects that may or may not relate to your industry. Our seniors are expected to be able to present their projects to a wide audience and you will help us achieve that! You are invited to join us for a training and networking brunch before the judging begins.
