You are an engineering student interested in addressing real-life and complex technical issues in the railway sector? 

Join us for the Future of Railways, a completely free challenge for engineering students (and professors) in Brussels!  

You’ll spend an afternoon working in small teams to find solutions to a specific challenge. You can, for example, explore how trending AI technologies like ChatGPT can aid in problem-solving and solution discovery. Afterwards, you'll pitch your idea to engineering experts and compete against other engineering students. Food and drinks are on the agenda as well 😉, providing an opportunity to network with engineers from the railways sector. 

Following the presentation of your group's solution, you may go home with one of these awards: most technical, best pitch, most sustainable, most creative or public choice as well as 2 trains tickets.  

What to expect? 

Event address: Infrabel Academy (5’ walking distance from Brussels West train station & Beekkant metro station).  

13.00 – 14:00: Introduction of the 5 partners and topics over a sandwich lunch  

14:00 – 18:00: Student engineering challenge - Be ready to collaborate and come up with ideas!
