MTConnect Student Challenge

MTConnect Student
Competition Offers $22,500 in Prize Money for Ideas and Applications

Have you shared the MTConnect Student Challenge with your interns yet?
With 50 days left to submit, the MTConnect Student Challenge is offering a total of $22,500 in cash prizes for winning submissions! The MTConnect Student Challenge is open to community college and university students at the undergraduate and graduate level and may be of particular interest to students who are studying manufacturing-related fields; electrical, mechanical or industrial engineering; or software engineering and IT-related studies.
Manufacturing is the world’s most data-intensive industry, creating immense amounts of data through each stage of production. However, much of that data is never collected, never analyzed, and never leveraged. The MTConnect Student Challenge seeks student-generated solutions for this data analytics shortfall. 

Industry stands to benefit from the new and innovative ideas and applications generated during this challenge. We are seeking help from you to raise awareness. Here’s how to help:
  • Share the challenge with interns and any other students you know who might have an interest
  • Contact colleges and universities with whom your organization has an existing relationship
  • Share information about the MTConnect Student Challenge through your social media channels
While industry will benefit from the new and innovative ideas developed through student efforts, students who participate also benefit through the contest’s educational and networking opportunities.

Thank you for your help!
