Engineers and Engineering Students – Enter Innovation Competition and Win 30 Hours of Mentoring from a Business Leader
Thirty high-level business leaders are offering career and entrepreneurial mentoring to student and graduate engineers. Mentoring prizes are available for 30 winners – 15 student engineers and 15 graduate engineers. The competition is open now with entries required by 28 February 2018. Read on for full details.
Mentor30Engineers is a new competition inviting student engineers/young engineers to conceive an idea that tackles a problem in society. Our society is a complex machine in the way that information is collected, decisions are made, how decisions and actions are communicated – sometimes this works and sometimes it breaks down resulting in major impacts on people’s lives.
Mentor30Engineers invites engineers to stretch their minds and come up with a solution to some of the biggest challenges facing society today (our aim is to stimulate thinking beyond app solutions that tend to proliferate business competitions). In this no-holds-barred competition, we are looking for imaginative and inspiring big ideas.
Below is the list of 30 highly experienced business leaders, all Sainsbury Management Fellows, who will mentor winners of the Mentors30Engineers competition. You can click their LinkedIn profiles to learn more about their careers. Our SMF mentors are looking forward to working with the winners!
