2016 Competition

Note for new attendees to UKSDC

Just to remind all those new attendees that the Finals competition lasts for two days, unlike the Regional Heats that get completed in a single day. Each of the five companies will consist of 46 employees, so this means that your role this time is likely to be more specialised. If the last few years are anything to go by, sleep becomes something of a luxury as each company starts to demand more of their employees before the last day dawns!

2016 Competition

Five weeks to go!

Hope all 230 participants from England, Scotland and Wales* are getting into the mindset of being 60 years in the future. Have a great half term break!

*This year, for the first time, the UK SDC will host a small group of students from European countries including Brussels, Greece, Germany and France and four students from Singapore.
