Praxis II builds upon what you learned in Praxis I and requires you to apply your design skills to a real-world engineering challenge affecting a community in the Greater Toronto Area. The first half of the course involves researching and framing an issue as an engineering problem in a Request for Proposal document, while the second half requires solving one of the problems proposed by the class and presenting your solution at a Showcase at the end of the term.
