As Golden Knights, we think, make and ignite innovation.
Congratulations to all of the teams that participated in the 2017-2018 President's Design Challenge!
All Clarkson University students were invited to participate in the President's Design Challenge to come up with a solution to "the big question" proposed by President Collins: How might Universities use intelligent and/or autonomous technologies to positively impact how we live and learn on a college campus?
We are proud to announce that there were 29 teams, 136 student, 27 unique majors, and all class years represented in this year's President's Design Challenge!
There were several awards that were presented to the students who participated as well as faculty members and campus support offices that assisted students throughout the challenge.
Congratulations to all the winners of the inaugural President's Design Challenge. Everyone's hard work has paid off and we congratulate the below winners.
