The Design Challenge provides students with unique exposure to the real world of engineering and helps put theory into practice. The competition prepares students for a career in engineering by equipping them with the right skills such as: project management and budgeting, team working and communication skills, leadership skills and practical design manufacturing and engineering skills.
There are four different projects rolling year on year. In 2021 the challenge tasks students to build a reversible vehicle.
