Why we founded the University Steel Prize

The University Steel Prize was founded in 2012 with the aim to encourage and seize the innovative power of engineering students all over the world by challenging them to come up with innovative ways to use high-strength steel.

Depending on the type of program, students may apply to the competition with product upgrades, methods, and concept and design studies that include high-strength steel.
