Do I need a team to register?

When does registration close?

Beacuse of our event being online this year we are unable to provide 3D printed parts for teams to rapidly prototype :'(

Does everyone get to 3D print?

Don't worry, we will have workshops throughout the competitions for students at all skill levels. We also have an enthusiastic and knowledgeable technical team that can help and guide you at every step of the way.

What if I don't know how to use CAD?

YES! Designathon is completely free for all students. 

Is it free?

Sadly, this year event is online so no food and 3D printing :'(

Will food be provided?

You will be working in a team to solve problems with some provided by our sponsors! The problems will be presented at the event.  

What will I be working on?

Designathon is open to students from ALL Universities and faculties!!

Can anyone participate?
