Student team funding is a key priority for the Faculty of Applied Science. The engineering design teams provide over 1,000 students with the opportunity to put into practice the engineering skills they learn in the classroom—and to play a leading role in shaping the future of engineering.
Within these competition teams, students are innovating in areas from sustainable transportation and robotics, through to earthquake research and biomedical technology. Being involved in a team gives students the opportunity to be creative, develop new technologies, travel and learn from peers, and build vital skills for their careers as professional engineers. Their participation gives them the competitive edge, both as team members and as future engineers or entrepreneurs.
