  • Providing interaction among students, teachers and engineer mentors.
  • Informing the community about the multi-disciplines within the engineering profession.
  • Inspiring students to explore futuristic concepts and careers in engineering.
  • Promoting the use of project management skills and tools within student projects.
The National Engineers Week Future City Competition requires:
  • Problem solving
  • Team work
