WIESoc x Jacobs Case Competition 2023

March 6, 2023 9:00 AM
UNSW Kensington Campus

👩‍💻‼️ WIESoc is excited to announce that we will be hosting a case competition in collaboration with Jacobs from 6th - 16th March! ‼️👩‍💻

Challenge yourself in this competition with your friends in a team of 2-4, where you will be given a case study brief and it’s up to YOU to develop your own innovative solution! 🧑‍🤝‍🧑🔥 If you want to register individually, we will team you with other individuals! 👀 No prior experience is required as we will prepare workshops to help guide you to better understand the ins and out of tackling a case competition first hand. This is a great chance to get exposure to real life problems and also get insight into working with Jacobs. 👏📚

🤩📢 The case competition is open to all UNSW engineering students (undergraduate and postgraduate). Students from other faculties are also welcome 🙌, but at least half the team should consist of engineering students.
