6. Engineering Newcomer 2019: Design competition offers pupils and students a unique springboard for their careers
Junior inventors win attractive cash prizes with their own project work and, for the first time, bring investors on board with their pitch
The successful Engineering Newcomer design competition starts its sixth round. CADENAS GmbH, together with partners of norelem Normelemente KG, Bundesarbeitskreis Fachschule für Technik and MDESIGN Vertriebs GmbH, is once again in search of the best projects in engineering and design among pupils and students. The young inventors, from technical disciplines of universities and technical colleges, have the opportunity up to 31 July 2019 to participate in the Engineering Newcomer 2019 with their project designs created within their study work. Attractive cash prizes are awaiting pupils and students as well as their educational institutions. And for the first time, the participants can present their product ideas to investors in the framework of the design competition and bring them on board through a pitch with a view for possible implementation later on.
The winner projects of the past years
Minimum effort with great benefit
All that's needed to participate is a created project or a thesis in the area of engineering and development, in the framework of one's study or training. The work will be evaluated by an expert jury according to the following aspects, among others: How interesting and original is the design? How high is its value in use or technological benefit? Is the desired function in the design realized and how can it be technically implemented?
Attractive cash prizes and ideal springboard for the career
The Engineering Newcomer competition is the ideal opportunity for pupils and students to achieve a high level of attention for their own engineering project and to obtain an award that will boost career opportunities for their future professional life. The design competition also offers attractive prize money for participating students and pupils as well as their schools or colleges. First place winners and their schools will receive 2,000 euros, 1,000 euros for each second place winner and the third place winners will each be awarded 500 euros. The winning schools will also receive the Engineering Newcomer Seal in gold, silver and bronze, which they can then place in an attractive way on their own website.
Competition among schools to find the best young talent in engineering
The so-called eternal list of the Engineering Newcomer competition shows the most creative of engineering schools: Continuously since the begin of the competition, all the participating schools have collected points for their contributions and wins. In 2018, the Technikerschule München ranked first place with a total of 39 points, followed by the Fachschule für Technik Mühlhausen with 18 points in second place. We are excited to see how the rankings of the most creative educational institutions will change during the 6th Engineering Newcomer and which schools or colleges will enjoy first place this year and the additional 500 euros.
As of now, the projects can be uploaded here. Participation deadline is 07/31/2019.
