4TH IEEE E-Week on Mobile & Robotic & Electro-Mechanic

02 May 2014 | Fez, Morocco

In collaboration with the IEEE Morocco Section, the National School of Applied Sciences-FEZ organize, the 4th IEEE E-Week’14 on Mobile & Robotic & Electro-Mechanic Contest, on May the 2nd 2014, to promote the engineering profession and to stimulate innovation and creativity among the engineering students.

The ENSA –FEZ Embedded Systems Engineering Day allows engineering students in embedded systems and Industrial data processing (GSEII) to present their innovative project to the Moroccan industry in order to discuss employment opportunities and potential internship.

The competition provides an opportunity for engineering students to submit their innovative technological solutions to industrials, professionals and professors. The objectives of this competition are varied: application of scientific knowledge and technical skills; put the engineering knowledge to the test; marketing a brand of robot; solve industrial challenges; and discover talents and innovative ideas.

This competition is organized in form of a Poster Exhibition Contest open to the public, students can prepare video demonstrations of their projects. The challenge is to design, build and prove a prototype in the framework of an innovative research-based project that serves to meet needs and constraints. Each exhibit is evaluated by the Committee of Judges composed of a multidisciplinary group of professors from the Moroccan university and industry experts. They act as external examiners in charge of the overall evaluation of students’ knowledge levels. The judges used face-to-face dialogue as one major technique to gauge students’ knowledge; the evaluation method of Performance Appraisals; a renowned competency-based method whereby abilities are measured in most direct, real-world approach. Top three teams’ finalists will receive IEEE awards’ certificates.

Bringing multidisciplinary professors and students to one venue, open to the public, provides technical and professional skills’ development opportunities to the exhibitors. The Engineering competition presents opportunities for students to back/couple theoretical knowledge and understandings with practical applications (geared towards improving the world we live in). It is a venue for student exhibitors to challenge their skills, creativity, and competitive spirit (towards further improving their learning experience). It is also a venue to inspire freshmen students with engineering innovative possibilities. The overall goal is to engage students in engineering endeavors.
