The 2018 BCWWA SDC will center on a real design problem in Penticton. Student teams will submit design solutions for the problem, which will be assessed by an industry judging panel. The winning team will present at the BCWWA 46th Annual Conference and Trade Show, May 13 – 18, 2018 in Penticton, and compete at WEFTEC 2018, September 29 – October 3 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The 2018 BCWWA SDC Project Statement will be released later this fall.
Help us achieve our goal of ensuring leadership and innovation is fostered within the water community by showcasing innovation and excellence among senior-level post-secondary students in BC! Your sponsorship will help provide mentorship and professional development experience to approximately 40 post-secondary students. Sponsorship also supports the volunteers involved as well as students during the competition, including sending the winning team to compete in the SDC at the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTC).
The BCWWA SDC promotes \”real world\” design experience for students interested in pursuing a career and/or education in water and wastewater engineering and sciences. Teams of students prepare and present a conceptual design that addresses the requirements outlined in design criteria established by a BC municipality.
The BCWWA SDC is based on the Water Environment Federation (WEF) SDC, held annually at the WEF Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC). The competition is intended to showcase the abilities and talents of 3rd, 4th year and graduate students in colleges and universities across British Columbia who are interested in the water environment field.
