This year marks the 15th anniversary of the James Dyson Award, and the 15th year of empowering the next generation of engineers to solve the problems that will impact their future. The 2018 International Winner, O-Wind Turbine, designed by Lancaster University students Nicolas Orellana and Yaseen Noorani, addresses sustainable energy generation in urban environments with a new type of wind turbine that captures wind flowing in every direction instead of the open fields where
turbines are typically placed.
As one of the top universities with a strong engineering school in Malaysia we would like to work with you to ensure that your students are aware of the competition.
- Design Brief: design something that solves problem
- Open to university level students (and recent graduates) studying product design, industrial design, and engineering.
- Submissions can come from an individual or a group.
- We are looking for products that have a significant and practical purpose, are commercially viable and are designed with sustainability in mind.
- The best entries will include sketches, images of models, prototypes and demonstrate the iterative design process.
