National Engineers Day (NED) 2019

The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) will once again host the National Engineers Day (NED) 2019 in Devan Nair Institute for Employment and Employability (E2i), Singapore from 18 – 20 July 2019.

The Engineering Innovation Challenge (EIC) is open to all universities around the world. This provides an excellent opportunity for university students to share knowledge, experience and expand their network, to promote engineering and a passion in this discipline.  Your participation in the competition will also serve to interest and excite youths to embark in the fascinating and multi-faceted world of engineering.

The Challenge: Design and build the prototype of a portable and sensitive ionizing radiation detector capable of detecting background radiation.

Teams are to note that the competition is based on the detection of background radiation, therefore the use and handling of radiation sources for the prototype design, building and testing should be reasonably low and accessible in everyday life.

The EIC Competition will showcase selected projects for final judging and subsequently for presentation of awards on 20 July 2019 at the National Engineers Day 2019.
