At the end of each semester, the MSU College of Engineering celebrates the achievements of its students by hosting Design Day, where student teams exhibit their design projects and compete for awards. Design projects are pervasive throughout the engineering curriculum, and all ten of the MSU engineering academic programs are represented at Design Day, including freshmen through senior level classes.
Design Day is open to the public and free. Attendees include corporate clients, families, friends, faculty and students. In addition, hundreds of middle and high school students travel from across Michigan to explore design principles with hands-on activities, encouraging them to pursue careers in engineering.
Design Day is held in the Engineering Building. This year the event will be held on Friday, December 9, 2016 and Friday, April 28, 2017.
