SCHOLARSHIPS CONTEST 2018

MRAC offers 3 partial scholarships covering 50%, 30%, 20% for the tuition fee of the Master in Robotics and Advanced Construction – Academic year 2018. Please read the competition outlines and terms & conditions below. The awards will be given to the top 3 contestants respectively. 

COMPETITION OUTLINE

In a context of demographic explosion, resource scarcity and global warming, the construction sector needs to evolve towards faster, cleaner, efficient and more customisable building systems. On the other hand, the current trend of Industry 4.0 promises groundbreaking technologies: robotics, advanced materials, computational design, AI and cyber physical systems that could potentially transform the way we design, build and inhabit tomorrow.

Will Industry 4.0 bring us a better built environment ?

We want you to share your visions and experiments of this future, showing the potentials (or challenges) of a cyber physical construction industry. This year’s competition will bring the focus on wood, a natural material with a long tradition in construction.

What are the untapped potentials of wood that new technologies could unleash for our built environment?
