Today's blog post is about an opportunity. Opportunity named Airbus FYI.
"It's a rare opportunity for tomorrow's generation to join Airbus in our vision for the eco efficient aviation industry of the future; to tackle the two percent the industry contributes to manmade CO2 emissions and meet the needs of air transport in a sustainable way; and to win EUR30,000."
Round 1 has started but you can register up until 30th November 2010!
What is the competition about?
Airbus FYI involves three progressively competitive and challenging rounds - judged by a panel of Airbus and industry experts - concluding with a live final. It's not just about engineering; students are encouraged to think about the overall Life-Cycle:
1) design; 2) supply chain; 3) manufacturing; 4) aircraft operation; 5) aircraft end-of-life. The teams selected for Round 2 will be asked to develop their ideas with support from Airbus staff. The five teams shortlisted for Round 3 will win a VIP trip to the final which will be held during the International Paris Air Show - Le Bourget in France, June 2011.
During the final, the five finalist teams will present their ideas to an independent jury - including industry experts - for a chance to win EUR30,000; the runners up will share EUR15,000. Students wishing to take part must register correctly as a formed team of between three and five members by 30 November 2010.
who can participate
To participate, they must be registered to study full or part time at a recognized degree-awarding institution and could be studying a Bachelors, Masters or PhD level degree in any discipline - from engineering to marketing; business to science; philosophy to design. There is no age limit. And students within a team do not have to be of the same gender, nationality, from the same University - or even the same country.
