Future City is a national competition in which groups of middle school students present their idea of what a city would look like 100 years from now and how that city would effectively deal with the demands of a global sustainability problem.

Future City St. Hugh Catholic School scale model The project involves several components: a virtual model of the futuristic city, a physical model of a section of the city, an essay and a presentation. The students work with guidance from their teacher and an engineering mentor.

“We wanted to develop the future engineers, attract them to the field. This is what matters,” says Osama Mohammed, a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering who has organized the event for the past 15 years. “This event is supporting a lot of future engineers.”
