Would you like to join Oticon’s engineers for an action-packed study trip to NYC along with other engineering students from Danish universities?

2019.03.18 | Heidi Søndergaard

You will battle with students from all over Denmark

To pick the 25 winners for the trip, Oticon is launching a challenging engineering competition in the spring of 2019. You can compete in one or more of the following challenges: Mechanical-, electrical-, or Software development.

The sign-up period is from March 11 - April 11. Sign up and learn more here!

You - and teams from all over DK - can win a spot on the Audio Explorers Team and join us on the NYC trip on August 21-25, 2019.

The program in New York!

In NYC the Audio Explorers Team will be equipped with a small sound measuring device. While we move around in the city, the Sound Activity Meter will automatically gather sound data from the surroundings and send it to a special Audio Explorers app on your phone.

The activities will be centered around engineering relevant topics, but you can also look forward to plenty of time to go shopping, sightseeing and enjoy nice food at good restaurants.

Every evening we will read out the data from the Sound Activity Meter to create a complete overview of the soundscape of the places we have visited during the day.

Oticon will pay all costs for plane tickets, hotel, breakfast, lunch, dinner, tickets for museums etc + all transportation while in NYC.

Who can participate and what do I do?

To participate, you have to study engineering and focus on either electronics, mechanics or software.

You sign up as a group (2-4 persons) within one of the three areas above and have two weeks to come up with a solution to the challenge. How you hand in your solution is up to you. You can e.g. use PowerPoint, 1-pager, poster, mockup or video presentation or something else.

We will send out the challenge questions on April 12. The deadline for your solution is April 28 at 12.00. We will announce the winners on May 7.
