Last Call for Student Project Entries for 2013 Smarter Planet Challenge

Last call for student project entries for 2013 Smarter Planet Challenge: Student Projects Changing the World: deadline 1 November

Do you have an innovative solution to a real-world or humanitarian problem? Are you ready to apply your engineering and business skills in order to develop and implement your solution? Are you willing to share your knowledge and expertise so that future students can benefit and learn from your project experience? If you answered yes to these questions, the IBM/IEEE 2013 Smarter Planet Challenge is for you.

The competition is open to college/university students from all geographic locations. Student teams should have three to five members in any year of university study. At least one team member must be an IEEE member. The deadline is 1 November 2013.

The purpose of the competition is to identify student developed multi‐disciplinary projects that solve real‐world or humanitarian problems, are ready for implementation, and can be used by faculty and future students as a classroom project to help students at any level learn about applying engineering, science, and other disciplines to solve real-world problems. It's a great opportunity to put engineering skills to use and earn cash prizes.
