2019 theme: The Life and Work of a Mathematician

Organized by the Mathematics Department

Students often ask the question "When am I going to need this?” when they study mathematics. Our Mohawk Math and Engineering Competition is trying to answer that question.

This competition introduces students to different applications of mathematics in engineering areas and encourage them to consider future careers in engineering technology.

We provide sample questions for each discipline in engineering: Civil and Architecture, Chemical, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science.
