Join us for the Challenge Launch Party
Friday, September 21, 2018
Lockwood Library, Room 109
11am and 12:30pm.

There will be giveaways and pizza (while supplies last) courtesy of the Challenge sponsor, Elsevier Academic Publishing.

The Annual Engineering Academic Challenge is a 5-week immersive problem-set based competition built around five trending themes for engineers, including Future of Energy, Future of Making, and Future of Medicine.

Through October 8, 2018, a new Challenge is posted each Monday, and students are asked to search for answers using UB’s engineering databases. The Challenge is to answer all of the questions correctly with the highest accuracy of that week’s participants. Play individually or create a team!

You must register to play and registration is free.
