ESTECO Academy Design Competition Award Ceremony

We are glad to announce that the Award Ceremony for the ESTECO Academy Design Competition will be held on July 21st at the Aprilia Racing HQs in Noale, Italy.

The competition, organized in cooperation with the Aprilia Racing and Gamma Technologies, invited the participants to test their skills in numerical analysis, simulation and testing to design the perfect race engine. The winning teams will spend the day at the Aprilia headquarters and labs, where they will have the chance to see engineers working on engine simulations and design, test benches, assembling, electronics, quality control and more. Furthermore, the winner will also get the chance to enjoy a 6-month internship at Aprilia Racing. Each member of the awarded teams will also get one year of free ESTECO Academy membership.
