FAQ

Do I have to be an engineering or management student to participate?

You can be from any faculty - in fact, we encourage it! Sustainability issues require diverse skillsets to solve, and despite the case having an engineering and management focus, all faculty experience is valuable.

I've never done a case competition before, can I still participate?

Yes! BRIDGE will offer an introduction to case cracking workshop.

Do I need prior knowledge on business sustainability to participate?

Although valuable, you do not need any prior knowledge to participate. There will be an introduction to business sustainability workshop that will focus on the key areas related to the case.

Do I need prior technical engineering knowledge?

Although valuable, you do not need any prior knowledge to participate. There will be a workshop delivered by The Barkley Group that will focus on the key engineering-related concepts related to the case.

I'm not located in Canada, can I still participate?

Yes, as long as you are a student at a Canadian University. Make sure to indicate your timezone within registration though!

I'm not a McGill student, can I still participate?
