What happened at the Thriving Online Global Learning Expedition in September 2020

With 48 students joining from 19 countries on 6 continents and 15 universities, Thriving Online 2020 was a multicultural, multidisciplinary adventure.

The winning team from each track went on to present at a global engineering education conference in front of 450 deans and industry leaders. And it didn’t stop there, one team continued their idea development and were crowned ‘employee choice’ winner of a global design competition, despite the fact that they were not winners in their track.
