If you are interested in taking part next year, please read our information leaflets that provide an outline of the competition.
This is a practical competition that will test your logic, design and fault finding skills in a challenging environment. This replaces the Mechatronics (Advanced) competition with minimal changes. To complete the tasks competitors are expected to apply their theoretical knowledge of fundamental principles, automation, pneumatic, electrical/electronic and PLC technologies.
The skills that are tested in the practical competition include:
• designing, building and testing pneumatic, electro-pneumatic circuits and PLC programmes for sequential and non-sequential tasks
• using appropriate sensors and actuators to build simple automated systems.
• adding new functionality and operations to a given application.
• General impression and function
