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

Challenge participants are selected by organisers from either the pool of self-nomination submissions or a nomination from their tertiary education organisation representative (e.g. Head of Department, lecturers).
