Welcome to the Engineering for People Design Challenge. You’ve probably started looking around the Challenge Areas, maybe you’re thinking about some ideas or perhaps you’re stuck on how to get started. Whilst it is completely up to you how to interpret the issues of this year’s Engineering for People Design Challenge, we’ve put together some guidance to get you started.

The Engineering for People Design Challenge has two parts. Participation, which happens at your university, and the Grand Finals, an inter-university competition where, if you are selected, you can present your ideas to a panel of judges and be in with a chance of winning the Grand Prize. How the Engineering for People Design Challenge is delivered at your university for participation in the initiative is decided by your academics. They decide which module it is run in, how it is assessed and any deadlines you must keep to for submitting your work as part of your degree. Eligibility for entering the Grand Finals is dependent on participation at a registered university.

Don’t forget:

The Engineering for People Design Challenge is all about you and your team demonstrating how you can be the engineers of the future and respond to the challenges the global community are facing. Only by understanding context and needs, and giving appropriate consideration to all relevant social, environmental and economic factors, can engineers provide solutions that will transform the future and catalyse sustainable human development.

This is the beginning of your journey to becoming a globally responsible engineer
