Engineers Without Borders Challenge Finals


Engineers Without Borders UK invites you to spend the afternoon at the EWB Challenge Finals 2016. 

The EWB Challenge is an inter-unversity design competition where student teams develop design solutions to overcome challenges set out by Engineers Without Borders UK in a design brief developed in conjunction with one of our community partners - this year Reignite Action for Development based in Bambui, Cameroon. The competition culminates at the EWB Challenge Finals where the top teams from UK and Irish universities are invited to come and showcase their design solutions. This year over 4,700 students from 27 institutions have participated in the EWB Challenge.

This is your opportunity to come and meet the best teams and see the hard work that has got them to this stage of the competition. You will have the opportunity to view the EWB Challenge exhibition showcasing the top 36 teams and to hear presentations from the top 6 teams as decided by our panel of expert judges. We will also be hearing from several speakers on the importance of initiatives like the EWB Challenge and responsible design and engineering.

Speakers include:

  • Naomi Climer - President, The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
  • Lord Dr Hastings of Scarisbrick CBE - Global Head of Citizenship for KPMG International

The event will end with a drinks reception and the opportunity to network with other attendees.

This is a great event - EPC will be part of the judging panel. Do try and get there if you can. To book a place:
