THE WORLD STEEL ASSOCIATION (WORLDSTEEL) HAS OPENED REGISTRATION FOR THE 13TH EDITION OF STEELCHALLENGE


steelChallenge is a competition where students and industry employees can test their skills using the sophisticated online process simulations delivered by steeluniversity.


steelChallenge-13 will be take place over two rounds. The Regional Championship will take place online on 28 November 2018 from 12.00 UTC. Participants will access the competition from the steeluniversity website and will have 24 hours to record at least three successful runs of the basic oxygen steelmaking and secondary steelmaking simulations; producing the required steel at the lowest cost.


The finalists for the World Championship will include the top student and industry person in each of the regions plus the student and industry person with the next best result worldwide. The four regions are (a) North & South America, (b) Europe, CIS, Middle East & Africa, (c) Asia & Oceania, excluding China, and (d) China.
