Description


You are invited to join us at The Home Automation Challenge 2019, organised by the Institution’s Manufacturing Industries Division’s and Young Members Committee. The challenge brings together ambitious, talented and aspiring young engineers to compete in an innovative design and manufacturing challenge to improve an everyday home or garden device.

Spectators are welcome to arrive at 15:15 to view team prototypes followed by a networkign drinks reception at 15:45 ending with an awards ceremony at 16:30 to 17.00.

The Home Automation Challenge is open to all apprentices from companies, colleges and training providers of engineering and manufacturing technologies. This July, teams of apprentices are expected to exhibit products they have designed and manufactured to make a job in the home or garden easier - for disabled people.

The prototypes will be judged at a Finals event in July, where the Home Automation Challenge champion will be crowned and will be awarded £2000!
