Experience the World Engineering Day Hackathon, an event that focuses on the urgent climate challenges confronting engineers today.
Under the theme “Engineering Solutions for a Sustainable World,” this hackathon provides a high-octane simulation of a real-world project. Participating teams collaborate intensively to produce a set of deliverables within a compressed time frame.
The event serves as a platform for students to put their theoretical knowledge into practice. It offers a unique chance to enhance critical thinking, acquire new skills, step out of their comfort zones, and establish enduring connections.
World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, observed annually on March 4th, is a UNESCO international day dedicated to boosting the image of engineers and engineering, fostering essential discussions.
In 2024, the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) and its associates are organizing the World Engineering Day Hackathon, a global initiative aimed at engaging engineering students from across the world in celebrating World Engineering Day.
Proudly produced in collaboration with Engineers Without Borders International, this hackathon stands as a monumental opportunity to bring together students globally, marking a momentous celebration of engineering’s impact on sustainable development.
