Industrial Design students win provincial design competition

Four Dawson students in the Industrial Design Program won first place in the provincial Odysée de l’objet en 48 heures competition for college students across Quebec held Nov. 10-11-12 at Université de Montréal.

Industrial Design Program Coordinator Carlos Carpintero says it is the second year in a row that Dawson students topped the competition.

The theme of the competition was supporting autonomous mobility. The Dawson team came up with a portable device to help people with muscular weakness or stiff joints to open doors.

The winning team members are: Ziyu Kang, Annabelle Mailhot, Veronica Silva Naranjo and Jennyfer Raymond.

City News came to Dawson to interview them about their project on Nov. 27. You can watch a video news report and read a story here.
