The Global Design Challenge is one of the most valuable learning experiences for these students in their entire degrees and we are looking to expand it to other degree subjects. In terms of motivating students at Sussex, the contribution of Engineers in Business was crucial.
The School of Engineering and Informatics would like to thank the EIBF for providing a prize fund for this year’s Global Design Challenge. This sponsorship encouraged students to develop skills such as the integration of social, environmental and economic sustainability into the product design process, understand the importance of community consultation and involve users in the evaluation of products and designs.
Both faculty and management at Sussex believe that this module is a paradigm of what students need to learn in 2022 and would like to express their gratitude to Engineers in Business for their support.
