The Engineers in Business fund contribution to our prize pot not only makes our programme more attractive to students encouraging applications, but also inspires young engineers to submit their applications, meaning the calibre of students and ideas alike is much improved competition-wide.
At QUB, we love having Engineers in Business involved, because our Dragons’ Den competition gives the students a chance to show off their innovations outside of the classroom, and understand that there are wider opportunities for our students outside of being employed at large companies. Having Engineers in Business involved in this competition adds a level of Engineering ‘legitimacy’ to the competition, and enables students to
foster a healthy spirit of competition between their classmates.
