Augusto Leborgne (4YL) and Matías Danten (5YL) participated in an Engineering Competition organized by Universidad de Montevideo and ended up in 2nd. The Industrial Innovation Center at the Universidad de Montevideo organised the “Managing the Global Supplies Chain” Competition to allow secondary school students to learn more about this specific area of the School of Engineering that aims to foster bonds between universities and companies.
This innovation center offers training, courses, seminars, and innovation and research projects. Augusto and Manuel successfully completed the simulation activities acting as Supply Chain Managers of a global telecommunications company, having to make key decisions and analyse their impact in a four year period.
On October 7th they defended their project orally and were delighted to find out their performance was recognised.
