Once again the addition of the Engineers in Business competition to our innovation competition brings both kudos and a tangible incentive for our engineering students to really consider how their innovative ideas can go beyond the classroom and be presented as a business case for real-world application.
Kat Mack, Student Enterprise Manager, University of SurreyThe EIBC competition is a fantastic opportunity for our students to develop entrepreneurial skills and transferable competencies which are essential in the workplace. It links particularly well with the Enterprise Project our Electrical & Electronic Engineering students work on during their second. The financial support from EIBC is invaluable in providing additional recognition and opportunities for our students who are keen to take their concept further.
