Dear Students,

On behalf of the organising committee, I thank you for joining us in this purposeful competition, organised for you, students, to enrich yourselves in this green project which aims to create awareness on environmental issues and also to innovate ideas for the society to play a part in environmental protection while fostering teamwork and presentation skills.

This is also a good opportunity to network with industry players who are invited to be the competition judges and are keen to look for potential employees or interns during the competition presentation.

As this is the first time ESESC is organising a competition of such scale, we do hope that the response be good such that The Green Engine can become an annual ESESC event.

All the best to you and good luck!
