  How to get involved - students

Why should students get involved?
ArchEngBuild offers a fantastic opportunity for students as the Challenge;  

  • Recreates a real-life client brief, giving students a unique work experience before they start their working life. The client brief reflects the host city’s aspirations and issues
  • Offers the chance for students to experience cross disciplinary collaboration, often for the first time
  • Encourages students to use the latest building materials, innovations and technology in their designs
  • Gives students access to mentors from industry associations
  • Creates valuable networking opportunities
  • Is a very attractive addition to a student’s CV. 

Watch our ArchEngBuild YouTube channel and what the previous winners said about their ArchEngBuild Challenge experience.

What can students expect?

Students can expect an intense three days of hard, but hugely rewarding, hands-on work.

It’s a given that with only 50 hours to meet their team mates, hear the project brief for the first time and deliver their project pitch to the judges, the teams will work hard under pressure and become a little sleep deprived! 

However, with experienced industry professionals on hand to mentor and encouragement by the organising team, students receive invaluable early career experience plus make new friends and contacts from across the construction sector.
