UNB engineering students heading to Toronto for national competition

Engineering students from the University of New Brunswick (UNB) are heading to Toronto this week for a national competition. 

A news release from UNB says the students will show off their innovative creations at the Canadian Engineering Competition and they will also tackle a design problem that is presented to them on the day of the competition. 

Four teams of engineering students from the university's Fredericton and Saint John campuses are moving on to the national competition after they took home first place in the innovative design, programming, communications, and junior design track categories at the Atlantic Engineering Competition in January. 

One of the teams competing in the innovative design category will present a 3D printed pediatric prosthetic hand for children. 

The event at Ryerson University begins Thursday and runs until Sunday.
