Emenents Shine @ LIPTON TALENT HUNT. Lipton Talent Hunt is a national contest held each year by Lipton under the umbrella of Unilever Pakistan Limited. The competition has two streams, engineering and business. As part of the engineering challenge, a real life problem is presented which the company is facing at its plants. The task is to provide an engineering solution to the problem which is both technically practical and economically viable.
This year, the challenge which was presented was automation of ripping the bags open and pouring the final mixed ingredients out of the mixer. 18 teams from across Pakistan participated in this engineering competition from 15 universities. Based on their project proposal 10 teams were shortlisted out of which 5 teams were from EME College.
All the teams fabricated and branded the machines during the campus drive. Finally 3 were short listed based on their engineering Idea, model and skills. It is a matter of great pride for DEE that all these finalists were from DE-31 Electrical Engineering. They were invited to Karachi to present their machines in front of a panel of company executives and experts. All the machines performed flawlessly in front of the panel and the teams were tested to the limits during an extremely tough question and answer session.
