The IAgrE Young Engineers' Vehicle Performance Competition

The 2014 Young Engineers Competition will be held on Tuesday 1 April

PLEASE NOTE THIS NEW DATE (previously advertised for 9 April)

Venue: JCB, Rocester, Staffordshire ST14 5JP

This event is part of the IAgrE’s Raising the Profile of the Industry campaign and is designed to raise the awareness among young engineers of the width and vibrancy of our industry.

The challenge will be to create a remote or radio controlled vehicle to produce the best performance on a standard test track from a set of standard wheels, a battery and maximum dimensions.

The competition is not restricted to engineering departments; indeed all disciplines within the land based colleges will be welcomed. We also welcome entries from Sixth Form and University Technical Colleges.

A total of £1300 will be available as a prize fund. There will be two classes, one for those meeting the design criteria issued and one for those outside those criteria. For details of the competition please visit
