What is the Witters Competition?
Established in 1993, the Witters Competition is endowed by Arthur G. and Beverley A. Witters for a college-wide interdisciplinary academic competition to foster better understanding among design, construction and planning students.
Each team consists of students from disciplines throughout the college, as well as engineering students. As each student on the team provides input regarding his or her part of the project, the team learns more about the other professions and the issues affecting their work.
