The CASS Student Design Competition is a worldwide competition in which undergraduate students team with high school students to envision and engineer projects with the goal of encouraging High School Students to study Electrical Engineering and related areas. Each project will develop a solution to a real-life problem based on circuits and systems. The first and second phases of the competition were conducted at the Chapter and Regional levels. The final international phase of the competition will take place during the afternoon technical session phase on Monday, May 29, 2017.
