Should there be any overlap with classes, midterms or exams email competitions@ecaconcordia.ca to receive an exemption letter for your competition(s). (Subject to approval).

NOTE: While Computer Science Students may participate in Englympics, only students studying in an Engineering undergraduate degree may participate in the CEC. Should a competition become full, priority will be given to Engineering students.

Senior Design

Saturday, November 21st, 2020, from 8:30 - 21:00 (Teams of 4)

This competition, planned for teams of four people, is typically reserved for students who have accumulated at least 60 credits towards their bachelor’s degree.

Teams registered in this category have 8 hours to create a prototype of a solution to the problem they are presented with on the day of the competition. Upon completion, teams will be asked to demonstrate the usefulness of their solution by testing their prototype in front of an audience.

Junior Design

Sunday, November 22nd, 2020, from 9:00 - 17:00 PM (Teams of 4)

This competition is reserved for participants who have accumulated less than 60 credits towards their bachelor’s degree.

The goal of Junior Design is to create a functioning prototype that solves a problem the team is presented with on the day of the competition. Upon completion, teams will be asked to demonstrate the usefulness of their solution by testing their prototype in front of an audience.


Monday, November 23rd, 2019, from 17:30 - 20:30 (Teams of 2)

The oratory debate competition shines the spotlight on future engineers entangled in verbal jousts, arguing with tact, eloquence, and repartee. In this competition, participants face off in teams of two and develop their argument on the spot over a position and a theme that is decided for them.

Scientific Communication

Monday, November 16th, 2020, from 17:30 - 20:00 (Teams of 1 or 2)

This competition highlights the Engineer’s ability to communicate their knowledge in a clear and concise way. The scientific communication competition allows participants, alone or in teams of two, to demonstrate their communicative skills by clearly explaining a complex engineering subject. Presentations are evaluated by a jury.

Innovative Design

Wednesday, November 18th, 2020, from 17:00 - 21:00 (Teams of 4)

The innovative design competition has no theme but allows you to use creativity to create an innovative product that answers a problem in society or a need.


Sunday, November 15th, 2020, from 12:00 - 20:00 (Teams of 4)

The programming competition makes teams use their software development skills, their technical writing abilities, and their project management skills to design a solution to a posed problem.


Tuesday, November 17th, 2020, from 15:00 - 21:00 (Teams of 4)

Technology evolves so quickly that it needs constant re-adaptation. The re-engineering competition aims to test participants, in teams of two, at making existing products better at answering new needs. Solutions will be presented to a jury, allowing participants to not only demonstrate their imagination and technical skills but also their communication and analytical skills.


Thursday, November 19th, 2020, from 13:00 - 21:00 (Teams of 4)

During this prestigious challenge, teams of four participants have six hours to come up with a complete and sustainable solution to a complex problem. Their solutions must then be presented to a jury, emphasizing the participants’ oratory and persuasion skills.
