We are approaching March. Fans at Fifth Third Arena anxiously watch the Bearcats on the parquet court compete to see who will advance in the tournament. This, obviously, can only be one thing: an engineering course.

First-year College of Engineering and Applied Science students recently competed in the mousetrap tractor challenge as a part of the courses Engineering Design Thinking I and II. The students in the tournament learn professional and academic skills that reflect UC’s strategic direction, Next Lives Here.
