Case Western Reserve University LaunchNET invites students to put their creativity to the test and form a team to be part of the 2019 Boeing Innovation Challenge. Participants can compete and cooperate with students from other selected universities to propose ideas that will make the creation and operation of commercial jetliners better for the future. Case Western Reserve is one of 10 universities invited to participate in the challenge.
This year’s competition has three focus areas:
- Simplifying commercial airplanes.
- Creating adaptable and flexible airplane cabins.
- Bringing advances from other industries to commercial aviation.
First-round winners from all schools receive:
- A trip to Mukilteo, Washington, to participate in a three-day, hackathon-style event (travel, lodging and meals to be paid for by Boeing through the university).
- Meetings with innovation leaders at Boeing to talk about students’ ideas and career aspirations.
- An opportunity to discuss and apply for upcoming Boeing internships.
Students can create a team of two or three members and register online to participate in the challenge. The deadline to register is Nov. 1. Teams also must complete a one-page summary form by noon (Pacific Standard Time) Nov. 15.
Diverse multi-disciplinary teams are encouraged.
