Description

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) takes pleasure in inviting you to be part of yet another fantastic student competition, the Design Challenge, aimed at encouraging young people to develop their technical and design engineering skills. The competition is held regionally across UK followed by a national final at IMechE HQ where all regional winners come together to compete for the Grand Champion title of the Design Challenge 2019 competition.

The teams that won their regional heats and are competing in the National Final are:

Year one

  • Plymouth University - Year 1 (Wessex)
  • University of Central Lancaster - Year 1 (North West)
  • London Southbank University - Year 1 (Greater London)
  • Coventry University - Year 1 (Midland)
  • Durham University - Year 1 (North East)
  • Sheffield University - Year 1 (Yorkshire)

Year two

  • Brunel University - Year 2 (Greater London)
  • Coventry University - Year 2 (Midland)


The Design Challenge gives first and second year undergraduate students a taste of the ‘real world’ of engineering by challenging them to design, create, present and run a device to a strict technical specification.

The Challenge enables participants to gain real-industry experience, practical employability skills and enhanced business and people skills, all within a set time frame. It is intended to complement the academic curriculum and is used by participants towards their projects.

At the event you will be able to view the prototypes, watch teams compete and present their business case.

For more information about the challenge please visit our website or contact us at designchallenge@imechenearyou.org.

We look forward to seeing you take part, meet new people and learn some valuable skills and knowledge at our event!

Join us to support the young engineers of the future.
