Green Challenge

Green Challenge with focus on sustainability

Around 200 students presented their take on a sustainable world at the Green Challenge student competition on Friday 24 June.

Green Challenge

Green Challenge has been held since 2010 and is DTU’s largest student competition, where students present green projects developed as part of the teaching.

The purpose is to ensure that the engineers of tomorrow know how to integrate aspects of social, financial, and environmental sustainability in their work.

In addition to the students’ green project work, Green Challenge gives the students practical experience in areas such as communication and networking.
