The 4th Edition of Future Generation highlighted the potential of engineering students currently studying in the region.

2017 Theme: Smart Cities

Participants were invited to design and develop an innovative energy solution around the 2017 theme of SMART CITIES.

With ever increasing urbanisation, new ways to manage cities and reduce energy consumption are required to improve efficiency. The competition invited the "future generation" of the industry to submit their energy saving solutions.



Judge's Choice Award

Decided by a panel of experts judges and announced at the Awards Ceremony (15 February)

People's Choice Award

Voted for by MEE/SME visitors at the exhibition and announced on the last day of the show (16 February)


This was by far the best student competition I have participated in (having already participated in a few), because unlike the other competitions (where usually the audience are people from academia) a large portion of the audience were people from the industry.
