Students are being given a chance to present their work to leading industry professionals and win a 1,000 Euro prize in the inaugural CWIEME Challenge.
CWIEME, a coil winding, insulation and electrical manufacturing exhibition, is launching a new initiative at its 2015 Berlin show to bring together the businesses of today with the engineers of tomorrow.
CWIEME Challenge is a competition to find the most innovative and groundbreaking electrical design and engineering projects from students at academic institutions around the world and introduce them to the industry's leading manufacturers.
Projects entered should aim to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of electrical systems or components, whether through innovative design, material development or advancement, or application methods. Entries may consist of projects in progress and/or yet to be published as a final paper, new investigations into improvements for existing or predicted challenges, prototypes or simulation tests, or results requiring further debate with the industry or academic communities.
A shortlist of finalists in the CWIEME Challenge will be invited to present their projects at the May show, first in an informal poster zone and then in a live final, after which the grand prize of 1,000 Euros in travel vouchers will be awarded. The winner will be chosen by the audience.
"Our focus is on finding and promoting ingenious projects, however large or small, that will ultimately have an impact on the future of engineering," says Chloe Theobald, Content Manager for the CWIEME exhibition series.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm on 6 March. Find out more at http://www.coilwindingexpo.com/berlin/Content/CWIEME-Challenge.
