Software Engineering Success at 2023 Canadian Engineering Competition

Congratulations to UVic Software Engineering students Finn Morin and Owen Jaques for winning the Senior Design Category at the 2023 Canadian Engineering Competition! Together with teammates Nicholas Sandor (UVic EENG) and Aditya Dangra (UVic MECH), they competed after advancing from both the UVic and Western Canada engineering competitions held in 2022.

The competition challenged them to create a robot that could inspect the quality of glass panels and dispose of them properly, incorporating automation where possible. With a set budget and eight hours of time, they had to build, program, and test the robot, and then present their design process.
