The GECKO Summer School is a 5-day virtual program to be held from June 28 to July 2, 2021, aimed at providing participating teams of students the experience and opportunity for international collaboration in tackling The GECKO Challenge.

Are you an engineering student who feels strongly about ending hunger or poverty? Perhaps you have seen the suffering brought about by disasters, drought, or pandemics and you are passionate about providing engineering solutions to manage these risks. Or maybe you simply want to achieve quality education for all, ensure water security, or improve city life. If you have aspirations for any of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, then you are the perfect candidate for The GECKO Challenge!

The GECKO Challenge will bring you to a virtual international environment where you can collaborate with engineering students from different universities in Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand to conceptualize innovative solutions to sustainable development challenges.

If you are an engineering student or a recent engineering graduate who has taken or are currently taking at least one of the 3 modules of the GECKO-developed online course Professional Engineering Development, and if you interested in taking part in The GECKO Challenge, please consult the primer to know all the details about the event and program of activities.

You can apply by completing and submitting the GECKO Challenge application form before May 31st, 2021. -Applications are now closed-
