Deepsouth will consist of 5 student competitions and 2 social events.

Where ?

Why ?

This year’s host institution is Jackson State University. Jackson State is located in the capital city of Jackson Mississippi near the city’s downtown area. All events for the Deepsouth conference will be on or near Jackson State’s campus.

Deepsouth is intended to give students an opportunity to showcase the knowledge and skills they have acquired through their coursework. It is also an opportunity for professionals to come get involved with the next wave of young engineers. Deepsouth should allow students to come have fun by engaging in friendly competitions but also network with attending companies.
