The contest, now in its tenth year, is open to construction industry students from around the world
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is looking for the next generation of construction industry leaders from around the world to take part in its Global Student Challenge.
First launched in 2014, the annual contest sees teams of built environment students pit against one another as they create a virtual organisation to plan and deliver a fictional construction project.
The competition is designed to test their creativity, planning skills, entrepreneurial spirit, and communication.
An all-expenses-paid trip to CIOB’s annual Members’ Forum is up for grabs, where the winning team will be able to test their ideas and gain feedback from construction industry leaders.
The winning team will also receive £2,000, while cash prizes will also be awarded to the teams finishing in second and third place.
Kate Macbeth, director of marketing and digital at CIOB, said: “I am pleased to once again be appealing to the most talented built environment students from around the world to step forward and take part in CIOB’s Global Student Challenge.
“This rare and unique competition gives the industry’s top prospects a chance to show they are the modern professionals of the future and test their skills in a life-like simulation of an exciting but challenging construction project.
“We’re delighted to be welcoming applications from September this year so that we can make the contest more inclusive for universities around the globe and give teams more time to enter.”
