Honeywell International announced Feb. 26 the launch of its annual process control design competitions in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) to recognize the most talented chemical engineering students across the world.

Winners will receive an expenses-paid trip to their regional Honeywell Users Group Conferences (HUG): HUG Americas, taking place in Phoenix, Ariz.; HUG Asia-Pacific, taking place in Perth, Australia; and the EMEA event in Nice, France.

The events provide winning students with an opportunity to present their project, learn more about the process industries and network with attendees, including potential employers. The sponsoring tutor will also receive the opportunity to attend a training course on cutting-edge technological innovation at one of Honeywell’s automation colleges. The prize covers all travel, accommodation and registration costs for the event.

All entries must use Honeywell UniSim design suite software, available free to professors teaching at students’ universities. Entries must be submitted through professors lecturing at the student’s university by April 30 for the Americas, May 31 for Asia Pacific and Sept. 30 for EMEA. Submissions should include an abstract of approximately 300 words detailing the benefits derived from the design and a short presentation.

Further information, entry requirements for all regions and details for professors wishing to obtain the UniSim Design software can be found at
