Sports innovation challenge

The Sports Innovation Challenge (SIC) is a cross-faculty programme which tasks students to design, build and implement solutions to real world engineering problems with a Adaptive Sports or Paralympic theme.

The aim of the SIC is to make a tangible contribution to Paralympic sport and healthy lifestyles for people with disabilities, whilst providing our students with a novel learning experience. Students working on SIC projects are granted access to athletes and coaches from all levels of Adaptive Sports, from grass roots up to Gold medal winning Paralympians. The interaction between the students and the end user is crucial to developing an understanding of the importance of user focused design.
