The Emerging Technology Competition (ETech) is an annual event organised by the IT Innovation Centre to promote innovative uses of emerging technology. The ETech Competition is free to enter and open to ALL current undergraduate and postgraduate students at the university, technical or non-technical. You can enter as an individual or as a team. To enter you need to come up with an innovative idea to use an emerging technology of your choice. You will need to submit a design or a working prototype to show how the technology will work. This year we propose some areas of interest to focus your ideas on, although you can also choose something else

  • Teaching and Learning

Examples of emerging technologies include: drones, cybersecurity, 3D printing, virtual reality, augmented reality, robot, blockchain, gesture controlled technologies, mobile applications and any other emerging technology of your choice.

The competition is accredited through the Personal Skills Awards (PSA) employability programme of the University of Birmingham, recognised by many employers.

Prizes will include paid internships and/or tailored support and guidance to all winners to further develop their ideas.
