ATDI gives engineering students the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and win prizes including a paid internship.

ATDI's annual competition is open to undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD engineering students, either as individuals or in teams of up to three.

This year's theme is white space network deployments and to take part, competitors will need to create a TV white-space database to include TV network calculations,TVWS availability and map calculations and white space channel assignments.

Judged by a panel of international experts, up for grabs are a first prize of €10,000, a second prize of €4,000 and a third prize of €1,000. All winners will also be awarded a one-year licence for ATDI's planning and modeling software, an internship at the company and an opportunity to become an ATDI certified trainer.

"It's a fantastic package for the winners," says ATDI operations director Paul Grant. "We all needed a bit of help to break into this industry and this competition gives that in a number of ways. Every students' entry will display their knowledge to some significant people within radio communications and, for the top three submissions, there will be a year's free access to ICS designer which will give them huge scope to advance their knowledge and abilities.

"Plus, of course, an internship with ATDI will bring them into the heart of the industry where they will learn from the most experienced engineers in the world," he adds.
