Engineering Challenge

The engineering challenge is a yearly ‘scrapheap’ design and build challenge, where teams of 4 are tasked with coming up with the best solution to an engineering problem in a short amount of time. This gives the more practically minded an opportunity to shine and gives all who enter the chance to take on a team of lecturers. Previous years have seen trebuchets, slingshots and 5¬†meter¬†high towers win the trophy. This is a staple part of an engineering students calendar with a more lighthearted design environment than exams and assignments.
