World Engineering
Day Hackathon

This year we go green!

A Global

The WED Hackathon is an initiative brought by the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), in partnership with UNESCO and Engineers Without Borders International (EWB-I), powered and supported by The Big Creative.

This students’ competition reflects the global partnership that brings WFEO, UNESCO, and the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) to achieve a global update and harmonization of engineers’ skills to face the challenges of sustainable development, through the Graduate Attributes & Professional Competencies (GAPC).

"Humanity is on thin ice, and that ice is melting fast."

Engineering Solutions for a Sustainable World

This competition is a fast-paced simulation of a real-world project. Teams are to work collaboratively on a problem to provide a set of deliverables within a short timeframe.

Utilising their theoretical knowledge, students gain first-hand experience to develop their critical thinking, build new skill sets, push themselves out of their comfort zone and build lasting  relationships.
