“This year, London South Bank University students have really excelled under extremely challenging circumstances with the enterprising ideas that they have developed. In addition to six teams of engineering students being shortlisted for the semi-finals, one team of first-year students were selected for the finals. This is in addition to one of our graduates also being selected as a finalist. These achievements are the biggest testament to all of their hard work, and willingness to embrace enterprise education.
We are so thankful to Engineers in Business for its ongoing support with our students, it has helped me and my colleagues to anchor the many ways in which enterprise, entrepreneurship, problem-solving and engineering are finely interconnected. I’m also grateful to have such a great student enterprise team that I work with and who offer incredible support to our students. Our student feedback has demonstrated that integrating engineering problem-solving with open-ended live-projects is an excellent method for enabling students to apply theory, research and creativity into their solutions.”
