The Calgary Chapter is gearing up to host the third annual Ignite Student Design Competition. The contest aims to improve integration of young professionals into the industry through mentorship and collaboration with experts.
Students from the interior design stream at Mount Royal University, Calgary, and architectural technology and construction project management programs at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) will participate in mockup projects for a real client.
The event is structured to bring together students with differing educational experience to work in a project team and to provide access to mentors and the client for advice and guidance on how the students can accomplish constructible, clearly communicated, effective design solutions under strict time constraints.
A fast-paced affair, the event commences on Wednesday, February 27, with a tradeshow and a kickoff night. This is followed by two intense weekend days with peers and mentors ending at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 3.
