The Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) is pleased to announce the second annual design competition for the Shobe Prize.
Student teams competing will submit a proposal for a tech-focused or software-based design project to a panel of judges in autumn quarter 2011. The winning design could be a web service, mobile device app, or another service for personal computing and communications.
Judges will select a winning student team that receives $10,000, office space, and one-on-one mentorship for three months over the summer, in order to develop their project into a prototype and a sales pitch.
At the end of the summer, students will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to a judging panel of professors and industry representatives. The student team will benefit by receiving guidance and mentoring, getting professional feedback on their final presentation, and having the opportunity to take their idea to the next step toward realization as a product.
Eligibility: All matriculated (Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD) students enrolled in classes in any of the UW departments involved in dub.
Deadline: November 1, 2011
