The FEKO Student Competition is an international contest organised annually by the Altair team in support of engineering education. The competition is open to all under-graduate and post-graduate students, anywhere in the world, who are using FEKO.
Solve an engineering problem using FEKO and you could win!
The FEKO Student Competition has been running for more than 15 years and attracts students interested in antennas, microwave devices, bio-electromagnetic compatibility and other electromagnetic related fields and gives them an opportunity to showcase their work using FEKO software.
What were we looking for?
The winner is judged on the extent to which FEKO features were appropriately applied for the maximum benefit, as well as on insight shown into the EM problem at hand.
Your submission should clearly describe:
