UF College of Design, Construction & Planning

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.

Fall 2017 Competition

This year’s competition will take place October 20-22. The winning team receives a $3,500 prize.


Each team must be interdisciplinary pulling from as many disciplines as possible from within the College of Design, Construction and Planning as well as the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering.

Once your team is formed, please send an email with team information to witters@dcp.ufl.edu. If you do not have a team but are interested in competing or if you need additional members for your team, please email witters@dcp.ufl.edu and you will be placed on a team or you will be connected with additional team members.
