Engineering Essentials 2022 - Winners Announced!

Engineering Essentials - Winners Announced

We are delighted to announce the winners of the Engineering Essentials Competition!!!

The Engineering Essentials competition invited all students studying Engineering and/or Technology-related degrees to design a universal, versatile product kit to help fellow students enhance their practical skills without the need to go to the lab or use specialist equipment.

We received submissions from across the world and were impressed with the effort put into each submission – the students demonstrated an understanding of their course requirements, future technical learning journey, and awareness of what other kits were being provided by other universities.

The results are in and we are delighted to share the winners with you...
