The 2023 world engineering day theme is

Engineering innovation for a more resilient world

Aligned with this theme, the World Engineering Day Hackathon is designed to encourage engineering students to work in teams towards a global real-world problem.

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.
