Aggies Invent is a 48-hour immersive design experience held in the Zachry Engineering Education Complex. It promotes innovation and entrepreneurial mindsets to our engineering students all year round.

48 students are chosen and get hands-on with projects that will push their innovation and collaboration skills. The concept is to gather interested students, seed the event with potential industry needs (medical, energy or others), allow the students to self-select teams, give them access and support at the design center and have them carry out the ideas to create prototypes in 48 hours. Each event is designed in collaboration with industry and faculty.

Ultimately, we want our students to push their innovation and creativity, compete for the best design, gain practice with rapid prototyping tools and encourage the best teams to use their designs as a jumpstart for forming startups. By the end of the competition, student teams will have developed a product/solution and will be encouraged to pursue it further and explore commercialization.
