Keysight Technologies announced the Keysight Innovation Challenge 2022.
Graduate and undergraduate students around the world can compete in the contest. Students need to create and secure an Internet of Things (IoT) device(s) that helps the world reach the United Nations’ goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.
Individuals and teams can compete to win up to $30,000 in cash, $10,000 worth of Keysight equipment for their school, and informational interviews for potential internships and job opportunities, said Renee Morad, Keysight Education Solutions Lead and head of the Innovation Challenge program.
This year, Keysight is helping to inspire female engineers by asking students to form teams of up to six members, with equal or more female students compared to male students on each team, and with a female team lead.
The Keysight Innovation Challenge is open for registration and entries will be accepted between April 4, 2022 and June 6, 2022.
Keysight will announce the top five entries in June, with the associated teams each receiving a $2,500 stipend to develop their innovations. Keysight said the five teams will go on to compete with their innovations at a final event in September 2022, during which the top three winning teams will be unveiled.
