Global Engineering Challenge

geclogosmallAt The University of Sheffield, undergraduate students in the Engineering Faculty undertake a week-long project called the Global Engineering Challenge, where they tackle real-world problems from a global perspective. They are challenged to think about not only the technical issues in engineering developments, but also the social, ethical and environmental implications of their decisions.

The challenge is based around the Engineers Without Borders EWB Challenge and gives students a valuable introduction to the wider issues around engineering.

Catherine teaches students during this challenge to work in teams effectively, to understand and collaborate with engineers across all disciplines and to think outside their specialisms – just as they will industry.
