Choose your design topic:

    • Students should consider more than one design project area. You are encouraged to view the materials supplied below as examples of projects assigned and completed in previous years as part of these sections. The reason we request that you make more than one choice is that you may find you don’t get a spot in your number one choice.



Examples from Previous Project Sections:
