Rewarding innovative projects using Honeywell’s UniSim® Design simulation software for the process automation industry, winners will receive an expenses-paid trip to their regional Honeywell Users Group Conferences (HUG): HUG Americas, taking place in Phoenix, Arizona; HUG Asia-Pacific, being held in Perth, Australia; and the EMEA event, celebrating its 25th year in Nice, France.

The events provide winning students with an opportunity to present their project, learn more about the process industries, and network with attendees, including potential employers. The sponsoring tutor will also receive the opportunity to attend a training course on cutting-edge technological innovation at one of Honeywell’s world-class automation colleges. The prize covers all travel, accommodation and registration costs for the event.

“It is always encouraging to see so much global talent through these student competitions,” said Bradd Schneider, vice president of global sales for Honeywell Process Solutions. “I’d really encourage students to participate in their region. It’s a great opportunity to showcase your talents and learn more about the industry.”


Competition details
All entries must use Honeywell UniSim® Design Suite software, available free to professors teaching at students’ universities. It provides an interactive process model that allows engineers to create steady-state and dynamic models and is used extensively for plant design, performance monitoring, troubleshooting, operational improvement, business planning, and asset management around the world.

Entries must be submitted through professors lecturing at the student’s university by 30 April for the Americas, 31 May for Asia Pacific and 30 September for EMEA. Submissions should include an abstract of approximately 300 words detailing the benefits derived from the design, and a short presentation. Further information, entry requirements for all regions, and details for professors wishing to obtain the UniSim Design software can be found at unisim.studentcompetitions.com.
