Energy Case Competition 2017
The Energy Case Competition is an opportunity for both science/engineering and commerce students to experience management and making leadership decisions in the fields of science and engineering. Participants will have the chance to win prize money and network with industry leaders.
Teams of four will be given a challenging case question, in which you will have a week to analyse and develop strategic recommendations. Finalists will then have a chance to present their recommendations to a panel of industry judges.
To enter, you must be a paid MCC member. You can enter as a team of four with your friends or individually, in which case we will put you in a team. Each team must have a minimum of two science or engineering students.
