Engineering students sweep the board in Monaco


Engineering students have triumphed yet again in an international competition for young entrepreneurs with a product designed to help blind and partially-sighted people.

The TouchSight Vision Mitt - designed by a team of four manufacturing engineering students - took first prize, worth 10,000 Euros, at the Next Generation Entrepreneur Forum (NGEF) competition in Monaco.

Last month the same team won the new Varsity Pitch competition between Cambridge and Oxford, dubbed "the business boatrace". In January the team was one of 10 winners in the Cambridge University Entrepreneurs Business Ideas competition.


The Department of Engineering is the largest department in the University of Cambridge, representing approximately 10% of the University's activities by the majority of common metrics, and is one of Europe's largest integrated engineering departments.
