Hosted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (North East Asia Region), the competition required the participants to design and build a material transporter that can carry granular material up and down stairs. The team that could deliver the greatest amount of materials to a container within a 10 minute time limit won the competition. With its innovative and robust design, CUHK defeated other strong opponents including the University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and South China University of Technology to become the winner.
