The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) invites you to participate in the 7th CASS Student Design Competition. The CASS Student Design Competition is a worldwide competition where undergraduate students will suggest and execute projects on Electrical engineering and related areas. The focus should be on finding a solution to a real-life problem based on circuits and systems.

The competition will take place in three phases, the first at the chapter level, the second at the regional level, and a final at the world level. The final will take place during ISCAS 2023 in Monterey, CA, USA.

CASS will reimburse the travel costs for the trip to ISCAS 2023 for the four finalists, one for each region - Regions 1-7 (USA and Canada), Region 8 (Europe, Middle East, Africa), Region 9 (Latin America), and Region 10 (Asia, Australia, Pacific), as well as ISCAS registration. The winning team will be awarded $3,000 USD.

The detailed rules of the competition can be found here.

Students who are interested in participating may contact their local CASS Chapter or Student Branch for support.
