Are you a school pupil or a student? Have you created an exciting project or written a final paper as part of your studies or vocational training? Would you like to present your interesting, self-developed design project to a wider audience? Then Engineering Newcomer is the right place for you. This is because here you can win great prizes with your design project!

Every year since 2014, we have been on the lookout for the best Engineering Newcomer. The design competition is aimed at school pupils and students of a university, technical school or university of applied science. All you have to do is submit your design work from the disciplines of Engineering or Development. A competent jury of experts will then evaluate the work you have submitted and choose a lucky winner at a big award ceremony. Aside from attractive prize money for you and your educational institution, you can look forward to plenty of praise and attention for your own project. Students and career starters in engineering also have the opportunity to present themselves and their skills and benefit from the prospect of enhanced career opportunities.

The registration for Engineering Newcomer 2023 has expired. New news about the Engineering Newcomer 2024 are waiting for you in December.
