About this event

The event will take place 15.00 – 17.00 UK time

The UAE Graduate and Student Committee is hosting the Discover Award 2021 by Class of Your Own.

Presentations will see four shortlisted teams present their innovative ideas on how an aging old stadium has been transformed to an outreach shelter for 200 residents.

 The teams will be judged on a newspaper report submission, telling the story of the transformation, and will present their ideas to a panel of judges to secure internship opportunities with leading engineering firms such as WSP, Mott MacDonald & Atkins.

The challenge aims to enhance the experiential learning opportunities for our future engineers by focusing on the following key skill areas:
  • Technology
  • Engineering and Design
  • Communication and Interpersonal Skills
  • Innovation or Creativity
The event starts at 18:30 UAE time.

Thank you to all our ICE UAE Annual Sponsors Atkins, Maccaferri, Menard, Jacobs & Ramboll.

Big thank you to our travel partner British Airways.
