Open to all university students – deadline 1 May 2022
The University of West London has an international student competition on “Impacts of IOT in Water Systems” for university students in the UK, Malaysia, Nigeria, South Africa and Mexico. This student competition is based on three steps: a preliminary stage to submit a proposal by a student group for screening (deadline 1 May 2022), preparation and training stage by a set of IoT devices (May-Jun) and final competition, i.e. IoT product in water systems (Jul-Aug: deadline 1 Sep 2022). Winners will be awarded prizes up to £750 in Oct 2022. It is run by a Malaysian University (USM) as the lead partner to give online training and provide IoT items of equipment which are fully funded by Royal Academy of Engineering.
Students can team up in a group of 3 and they can be interdisciplinary from various engineering backgrounds including civil/environmental/chemical/electrical engineering and computer science, as the work usually needs all areas of expertise. Students can be from any level but ideally from levels 5, 6 or 7. Any number of teams can participate in the first step (the conceptual model), but maximum 5 teams from each country will be selected for the other two steps (training and providing the teams with IoT devices). More info about the competition can be found in this flyer and the video presentation in this link https://sites.google.com/view/frontierschampions2022/workshops
This is an interdisciplinary practice for students that has numerous benefits for those who will be participating in. For any enquiries and to register interest in participating in the competition, students in UK Universities need to contact the UK host supervisor (Dr Kourosh Behzadian at firstname.lastname@example.org) by the middle of April 2022.
