Description

Civil Engineering Design Competition for Scottish Schools and Colleges

Imagine a theme park with clear views of Dundee’s waterfront … what would your students design?


Abertay’s Civil Engineering Design Competition aims to extend the ethos of new perspectives, bringing people together, and inspiring creativity for Scotland’s secondary school pupils and college students—which means we’d like to encourage as many as possible get involved and have fun!


The challenge
To capitalise on Dundee’s rejuvenation, Dundee City Council would like to add an attraction to the growing portfolio of the city’s east end. The local council is accepting tenders for a theme/leisure park on an abandoned site in this area.

The competition
College students and secondary school pupils in years 4-6 will work in small groups and conceptually design a ‘Dundee’ themed leisure/theme park, including a detailed design for a main attraction. In following the design brief, each group will have a design which, in theory, gives unrestricted views of the city, whilst also complying with the specified requirements of the project.


All submissions will be shortlisted and the finalists invited to Abertay University in Dundee to build their designs within our bespoke engineering labs. The winning team will be decided by our judging panel of BEng/MEng placement partners, who will be present on the day.


This is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to meet current engineers from a range of organisations and to meet the team behind the TOP Civil Engineering programme in Scotland!

Key Dates:

Sign-up deadline - Friday 26th October 2018

Design submission deadline - Friday 14th December 2018

Date of final - Wednesday 20th February 2019
