EMPOWERING CURRENT AND FUTURE ENGINEERS TO
SHAPE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
The successful completion of the our first Engineering Design Competition (EDC2022) highlighted the desire and ability of West African engineering students to work on projects which have a direct impact on their environment.
S2P Africa is committed to realising the potential of our engineering graduates through our academy and internship programs to help our region break out of the endless cycle where the lack of industry creates inexperienced engineering graduates unable to drive the creation of industry.
Big thanks to all our attendees, competitors, judges, corporate and individual sponsors for making the first S2P Engineering Design Competition a success.
Huge congratulations to our 10 finalists and to team Koye Hydro who emerged ahead of over 40 teams as the Winner of the S2PAfrica EDC 2022, taking home $10,000 IDRC grand prize and $2000 from Cummins West Africa, to fund the development of their project as well as teams KeyTrick and Improved Charcoal Stove came in second and third respectively.
A new bar has been set and we can’t wait for EDC 2023.
