This Challenge consists of a transdisciplinary student group competition running in Semester 2 2019. This activity replicates industrial processes and ways of working. Students will be supported by appropriate workshops to learn all about innovation and skills development by an industry expert!
All you need to do is come to the Launch Event, attend workshops every Wednesday, attend a day trip at Ford in Dunton and finally present your pitch at a Grand Finale in front of senior management from academia and industry.
