INWES is collaborating with WFEO, who is preparing the celebrations of World Engineering Day on the 4th March 2022. One of the key events is a global hackathon for engineering students. This is a great opportunity for engineering educators to showcase the abilities of their students. The challenges for the Hackathon are aligned with the Un Sustainable Development Goals and the judging criteria are aligned with the International Engineering Alliance Graduate Attributes and Professional Competencies (GAPC) Framework.
By participating in the Hackathon, students will be able to demonstrate their achievement the desired outcomes of the GAPC Framework such as being able to research a topic, critical thinking, innovation, collaboration, working inclusively in teams, communication, use of information technology tools and development of an engineering solution that when implemented would advance one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
8-10 finalists will be invited to produce 2-3 minute videos of their solutions and showcased in a global virtual event on 4th March 2022 etc. This is an opportunity to demonstrate the achievements of engineering students from your country to a global audience.
Registration for the Hackathon is now open.
The information on the Hackathon is available on the World Engineering Day website:
Information is also available in the attached Guideline document.
The challenge will be released to registered participants on 10 January 2022. Winners will be announced on World Engineering Day 4th March 2022.
Please circulate to your university engineering facilities to promote to all engineering students in your country
Thanks in anticipation of your support for this important global engineering event.
