New Ideas and Innovation Tournament Challenge asks students for novel solutions to unsolved societal problems
A new competition sponsored by the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering asks Purdue students to propose novel solutions to important unsolved societal problems. Prof. Babak Ziaie says the Ideas and Innovation Tournament Challenge (I2TC) is open to all Purdue students and simulates the experience of being an engineer entrepreneur. In the first phase of the tournament, students form teams consisting of at least one ECE undergraduate student. The teams then choose a topic for the challenge (i.e., aging, food safety, smart cities, energy efficiency, etc.) and develop a proposed solution.
