University of Saskatchewan engineering students took second place in two events at the Western Engineering Competition Jan. 26 to 29.
The second place finishes were in consulting engineering and the team design junior category.
The competition was divided into senior and junior categories. The junior level required participants to save people from a burning building, whereas the senior level had to build a robot that could sort grain and pick up bail.
These two teams will represent the U of S at the University of McGill from March 10 to 13 at the Canadian Engineering Competition.
The competition will test students’ knowledge of engineering process and design, teamwork and communication, and meeting a deadline. These are tested within categories of design, debate, consulting and communication.
