Young Engineers are being offered the chance to win up to £5,000 and a prototype of Winning Design in this years Engineering for Access Award.
The Engineering for Access Award 2019 is aimed at undergraduate engineering students and offers one winner the chance to have their life-changing design, for people living with disabilities, made into a prototype as well as a cash prize.
The award is supported by personal injury firm claims.co.uk, in run in association with product design experts Bang Creations. It was created to help the brightest engineering undergraduates to come up with a design to change the lives of people living with disabilities.
For 2019 one winner is set to walk away with an industry standard prototype of their design and any cash from the £5,000 budget leftover.
“We’re excited to see the brilliant and innovative designs that engineering students across the UK can come up with to help anyone suffering with a disability; whether it’s one they were born with or through an accident. Over the years, we’ve dealt with thousands of people whose lives have been severely impacted by personal injury – and sadly for many, this can sometimes result in irreparable damage that can leave them disabled.” Managing Director of Claims.co.uk, John Quail
The competition asks applicants to respond to this year’s brief with a product design (including drawings or CAD renderings), an information about their intended user and inspiration.
The competition will be judged by a panel of judges from claims.co.uk and Bang Creations. Entries will initially be shortlisted to 10 students, and then whittled down to one winner.
The competition is open to any undergraduate students currently studying at a UK based university in an Engineering discipline and entries must be submitted by 3rd December 2018.
