The Midwest Student Design Competition is intended to promote “real world and hands on” design experience for students interested in pursuing an education and/or career in water/wastewater engineering and sciences field. This year, the Midwest Student Design Competition and Career Fair will be on Monday, April 6, 2020 in Madison, Wisconsin at the Monona Terrace Convention Center.
