2018 IPWEAQ Futures Challenge

The IPWEAQ Futures Challenge invites final year students studying engineering and related disciplines to present their thesis or research project at the conference. Students are asked to prepare an A1 poster board which clearly outlines the key elements of their thesis or research project and present their conclusions, recommendations and outcomes to conference delegates.

The Future Challenge winner is then chosen by a panel of judges. In addition to the opportunity to meet a wide range of industry leaders and build their personal profile, the winner also receives a complimentary registration to the next IPWEAQ annual conference valued at over $2,000.
