Judges and Guests

Register to be a Design Expo judge or RSVP to let us know you're coming


What do an air-driven moped, a wireless cardiopulmonary monitor, a hand-washing detector, and a portable oozeball court all have in common? All are projects tackled by student teams that have been on display at the Michigan Tech Design Expo. You can expect to see real industry project such as these at the Expo, and many more.

At the Expo, you’ll have the chance to explore the breadth and depth of undergraduate project work from Michigan Tech’s Senior Design programs, with more than 600 students participating. Presentations, projects, and posters will be on display throughout the day.

Best of all, the Expo is free and open to all members of the community.
