Honeywell's 2012 Student Competition Now Expanded Across Asia Pacific
Honeywell has expanded its annual Asia Pacific Honeywell Users' Group (HUG) Student Competition. The student competition, which was launched in 2008 in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and in 2010 in the Americas, is designed to foster talent and uncover the next generation of process manufacturing and technology leaders from academic institutions around the world.
Students in Asia Pacific are challenged to use the Honeywell UniSim Design Suite, an intuitive and interactive process modeling solution, to create a process design that could solve a critical plant business issue. Efficiency, productivity, reliability, safety and the environment are just some of the issues students need to consider when developing their solutions.
A committee made up of experts in the field will select the winning team, who, together with the sponsoring tutor, will attend the HUG conference being held at Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast, Australia in August 2012, where they will present their project. The Asia Pacific HUG 2012 Student Competition is open to any student currently enrolled in the engineering department of an accredited college or university in Australia, New Zealand, Korea, India, Japan, South East Asia and China.
This year, five consolation prizes will also be awarded. The winning students and their sponsoring tutors will be able to attend their choice of one of two advanced UniSim Design training courses.
Submissions should be made online using a 300-word abstract and PowerPoint presentation, and must include details of the experiment, describe why the approach is innovative and the main benefits of the project. The deadline for receipt of the submission is 30 April 2012.
