Student Competitions

Student competitions are special events of the International Conference on Chemical Engineering 2023. This year two student competition events will be organized.

#01: Student Project Video Competition

Theme: Application of Chemical Engineering for Improving the Day-to-Day Life

Objective: This project is intended to identify a problem or difficulty in our day-to-day life and propose a sustainable conceptual solution based on chemical engineering to improve the quality of life.

Presentation Mode of the Project: The project is to be presented as a recorded video covering each essential aspect. The team is fixed to four members. Each member of the team is required to participate in the presentation. The permissible time span of the recorded presentation is 5-6 minutes.

#02: Chem-E-Car Competition

Objective: The aim of the competition is to provide students with an opportunity, in a team-oriented hands-on design and construction of a small chemically powered car. It tests the ability of the participants to safely control and harness the energy of a chemical reaction by initiating the car and allowing it to traverse a fixed distance carrying a certain load
