This paper examines the role of design competitions in undergraduate engineering education. Emphasis is given to those competitions that are intended primarily to provide experience in engineering practice, and require a functional deliverable to be tested as part of the competition. Design projects in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Colorado State University are presented as a capstone course case study. The benefits of integrating design competitions into a capstone undergraduate experience are discussed
