143 teams from 69 schools all over New Zealand participated in the University of Auckland "New Zealand's Next Top Engineering Scientist" event. This was the fourth year the competition has been run and the general standard of entries was again very high.
As with previous problems, coming up with a solution required some sound problem-solving skills typical of those needed and employed in the Department of Engineering Science.
All participants all enjoyed the competition and learnt something in the process. A detailed judges' report with brief comments on every team's entry will be released next week but for now, here are the results you have all been waiting for.

What Kevin Chang has to say about his Engineering Degree course at Cambridge University:
"I've been in Cambridge for over a month now and it's an interesting place, to say the least; there's always something going on - a debate at the Union Society, formal hall dinners, conferences such as "Silicon Valley Comes to Cambridge"... Add in the workload and the daily life, and it all makes for very intense 8-week terms. Some days it can almost feel like too much (namely, the day before my supervisions, which is not unlike having interviews twice a week...), but I never forget how I lucky I am to be here.
