Aramco Tech Quest
About the challenge
A vital tool to help understand what lies beneath the earth’s surface are subsurface surveys. These surveys help measure the physical differences between rock types or physical discontinuities without the need for digging, drilling or tunneling.
The technology has a myriad of applications from ensuring that infrastructure such as dams, bridges, windmills, and tunnels are safe in helping scientists understand and, perhaps in the future, even predict earthquakes
Geophysical surveys are extensively used for oil and natural gas exploration, but alongside this they are valuable tools in developing new sources of energy and natural resources. Digital advancements in geophysical technology driven by data analytics, robotics, machine learning, and advanced visualization technologies are opening new avenues for understanding the planet we live on.
Who can apply to the challenge
Technical students have an opportunity to be part of the solution by entering the one-day Aramco Tech Quest. Preferably, they have background studies in either of the following specializations: data automation, drones, robotics, data analytics, earth sciences, geosciences and (or) imaging physics.
This free to enter challenge gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity in using subsurface surveying.
I. The winning team will win €2,000 cash
II. Earn entry to Co-Lab: a half-day event workshop on entrepreneurship where you can meet start-up leaders.
III. Coaching hour with YES!Delft team member.
