About the global challenge

Background

The Global Challenge is organised by the IET Young Professionals Community Committee (YPCC) and is a bi-annual competition that ran for the first time in 2014/15.

Each competition calls for a different challenge to be solved and runs in partnership with a charity relevant to the chosen topic.

Now in its third cycle, the previous two challenges were in association with RedR UK - a disaster relief charity that provides training to aid workers and agencies worldwide - and the challenges were based on humanitarian aid topics.

For the 2018/19 competition, and for the first time, we have two charities partnered with the competition - Greenpeace & GreenSeas Trust. There are two challenges for teams to choose from.

Objective of the Global Challenge competition

The Global Challenge aims to encourage Young Professionals across the globe to address a real world engineering challenge with their diverse academic and technical exposure.

The challenge will focus on the technical feasibility, efficiency and innovation of the proposed solution as well as testing the marketing skills of participants.

Who is eligible to take part?

The competition is open to students and Young Professionals who are between the ages of 18 to 35 inclusive at the launch of the competition.

Team members can be located anywhere in the world and should be made up of three to four members.
