Engineering students: check your simulation moxie

A Honeywell competition challenges engineering students to solve manufacturing issues using simulation software. The UniSim Design Challenge is held in conjunction with the Honeywell Users Group (HUG) Americas symposium, the company's largest customer event in the world, and is open to students pursuing engineering degrees at accredited universities in North and South America.

Students must use Honeywell's UniSim Design Suite software to create ways to make plants safer, as well as more efficient, reliable and sustainable, while continuing to meet ever-growing production demands. The Americas competition is one of three held globally and is one of several Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) initiatives designed to encourage engineering studies.

Winners of this year's competition will be flown to Phoenix to attend HUG Americas, where they will present details of their entries and network with industry experts and potential employers. The conference will be held June 10-15 in Phoenix.

UniSim Design lets users design and test processes before they are implemented in manufacturing plants. This lets new plants begin production faster, safer, and also helps existing plants improve operations and, in some cases, helps plants use less energy in production
