Engineering vs. Business

Engineering vs. Business Week, or EVB Week, is a five-day competition between students from the McCombs School of Business and Cockrell School of Engineering.

The week does have its roots in a rivalry between the colleges, but the events are intended to give business and engineering students an opportunity to get to know one another outside of the classroom. Competitions like capture-the-flag and dodge-ball allow each school to showcase the athleticism of its students. Trivia and improv comedy allow students to flex their intellectual and creative muscles.

The competition is always heated, but each side looks forward to the chance build relationships across schools through competition and collaboration.

For more information about how to participate, please contact the our Promotions Director, Ryan Morris.
