The Annual First-Year Case Competition, hosted by the Student Engineering Council, is an opportunity for first-year engineering students to gain experience with case competitions and be introduced to the field of consulting. In the last two years, nearly 40 teams of 3-4 first-year engineers participated, learned to successfully develop a case, and presented their solution to a panel of judges.
This event includes a Kick-Off, where the teams are introduced to the case competition concept, shown a sample case, and first given their prompt and case packets. Three case workshops are held in the following week: each one is hosted by a different organization and centers on a different aspect of the prompt and case prep. Competition Day consists of preliminary and final rounds, each consisting of a ten minute presentation, five minutes of Q&A, and five minutes of judges’ feedback for the participants.
Teams are to consist of up to 4 people (an exception of one-engineering major). No prior case competition is necessary. We’ll guide you through the process.
