ESTECO Academy Design Competition: 233 qualified participants from 20+ countries

The registration deadline for the ESTECO Academy Design Challenge in partnership with Aprilia Racing and Gamma Technologies closed on Wednesday, 30 November. More than 500 individuals from over 30 countries have expressed their interest. Out of these, 233 have qualified to compete by satisfying all the criteria of the call.

A total of 91 qualified teams from more than 20 countries, including Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Sweden and UK, will now have five months to prepare their design proposals - the final deadline is 30 April 2017. They will rely on state-of-the-art engineering technologies provided by ESTECO and Gamma Technologies to develop the perfect race engine and win a job experience with the APRILIA Racing team! Each member of the first and second-best team will also enjoy one year of free ESTECO Academy membership

ESTECO, Aprilia Racing and Gamma Technologies invited undergraduate and graduate students from around the world to improve the performance of a four stroke single cylinder engine through multidisciplinary optimization, while taking into account a set of constraints, including sustainability criteria. The competing teams will use the modeFRONTIER optimization platform to identify the best viable solution for their projects. 

Best of luck to you all!
