Bracket Challenge

Engineering University Challenge, Round 3

Thirty-two U.S. engineering universities have been pared down to eight. It is time for round three of the tournament, and once again we need your input.

Our annual Engineering University Bracket Challenge is now into round 3 (see figure). You have pared down the initial 32 U.S. engineering universities to these eight: Duke, Texas A&M, the University of Wisconsin, Georgia Tech, Stanford, the University of Illinois, the University of Michigan, and Purdue.

I’m glad to see that Ramblin’ Wrecks Georgia Tech is hanging in there, but I can’t vote for my alma mater. Now it is time for round three, so don’t forget to add your vote again and get the rest of your alumni to sound off as well.

We are down to eight in our annual single elimination tournament, and we need your input for round 3.

The selected university that makes it to the end will win an exclusive event on their campus with food, music, and prizes. One lucky university student will win the grand prize: an all-expense-paid, three-day trip to Maker Faire, May 17-20, 2018, in San Mateo, Calif.
