Students (that’s you – ed.) now have until 14 January to enter their designs for…The deadline for Engineering for Access 2019 has been extended, offering UK engineering undergraduates from any discipline the chance to win £5,000 plus an industry standard prototype of their design.

Leading personal injury firm Claims.co.uk, in association with product design experts Bang Creations, set up the award to help the brightest engineers. The award tasks undergraduate to come up with a design to change the lives of people living with disabilities.

One winner will walk away with an industry standard prototype of their design – and any leftover cash from the £5,000 budget will go straight to their pocket.

Managing Director of Claims.co.uk, John Quail, said: “We’re excited to see the brilliant and innovative designs that engineering students from across the country can come up with to help anyone with a disability.

Entrants must respond to a brief, which includes their product design, it’s intended user and their inspiration for their creation. They may also include drawings or CAD renderings of their design if they wish. A panel of judges from Claims.co.uk and Bang Creations will select a shortlist of 10 students, and ultimately one winner.

Engineering for Access is open to undergraduate students currently studying at a UK based university in an engineering discipline. Entries must be submitted by 14 January 2019.
