Why Should I Get Involved?
Broaden your skills
The CIC is an excellent opportunity to get access to new technologies and experience them in a unique environment containing resources which are generally not accessible to university students.
Develop Business Cases
The competition also allows you to develop a business case and pitch your work to industry executives. You get the chance to build something real; something that solves a nagging problem or creates something unique.
