OCAD University's Design Competition, presented by the Faculty of Design, is an annual event wherein interdisciplinary teams of 3 to 6 students are presented with a design challenge — usually a real-world issue — and over the course of an extended weekend asked to respond with their solutions. Faculty advisors with expertise relating to the challenge are on hand on Saturday to answer questions about concepts and technicalities, and students must present their designs by the end of day on the following Monday. Many of OCAD U graduates cite the challenge as one of the most important experiences in their time at the university.
