About Us

2022 will be UTEK's 21st kompetition!

The University of Toronto Engineering Kompetition (UTEK) is an annual competition targeted towards undergraduate students. The two day competition gives students the opportunity to use their classroom education to discuss and solve real engineering problems. These range from design problems, case competitions and even debates surrounding the challenges within engineering and society. UTEK encourages deep collaboration, teamwork, creativity, and ingenuity among students in all of its competitions.

UTEK is known as THE largest engineering competition at the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto! It attracts up to 500 future engineers, consultants and more. The top teams from UTEK then go on to successfully represent the university in both the Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC), and the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC).

The eight competitions are: consulting, programming, senior design, junior design, re-engineering, communications, debate and innovative design.

Please contact utek@skule.ca regarding any questions about how to get involved!
