Departments invite external judges to help rank the design projects. They will be reviewing a set of written reports, the oral presentation, and the poster sessions. Each report gives more detail on each project’s background, analysis, and results. The oral presentations are given before the judges and other attendees, but no questions are taken at that time. After all the team presentations have concluded, poster sessions will be opened for a question-and-answer period for judges and others. Judges score the report, presentation, and poster session using rubrics provided for the event.
Scoring will be based on weighted voting by the external judges plus all Drexel faculty, staff, and students with a Drexel University ID.
Every Senior Design team in the final competition will be considered for the following awards:
- 1st Place - $2,500
- 2nd Place - $1,500
- 3rd Place - $1,000
