Event details

Empowering future engineers here, there and everywhere

Energy, robotics, driverless cars – Siemens quite literally influences every part of modern society. Our innovative engineering is found here, there and everywhere – but one of our technologies will bring worlds together like never before. MindSphere is a revolutionary operating system harnessing the Internet-of-Things (IoT) to connect devices and, one day soon, entire cities with one another. Imagine a future where transport operates itself, or entire businesses govern themselves autonomously. The foundation of it all exists. And whatever kind of engineer you are, you’ll create within this digital ecosystem. So join us, show your openness to adapt to the future and build a unique device in a MindSphere connected environment. The Sir William Siemens Challenge is open to 17 UK universities that we partner with and in the future we hope to open it up to more!
