HOME/COMPETITIONS/HIGHER EDUCATION/AUC 2020
4th year undergraduate students from the Civil Engineering Department of Auckland University, based in New Zealand, took part in their own internal Enginuity Competition as part of their Construction Management related module.
The students were split into 34 teams, and competed over 8 rounds, or two simulated years, between March and June 2020.

The story, period by period
Comparative assessment of all teams
|PERIOD 12: "Veni, vidi, vici!"|
"I Came, I Saw, I Conquered". Way back in history, Julius Caesar's sent those famous words in a message back to the Roman Senate in recognition of an overwhelming victory. And so it was for "Consulting YM" who extended their lead at the top of the table in the final round to nearly 180 points to deservedly become the Auckland University Enginuity 2020 Champions with an impressive finishing score of 2,134 pts, and their success owed much to them demonstrating one of the guiding principles in running a successful business, consistency.
Behind the Champions there was no change in position for their three nearest rivals. "P4AC" held onto the Runners Up spot, with "Hachi Consulting" narrowly holding off "The Warehouse Group Ltd" to finish 3rd. Further down the table the outstanding performers in the final round were "Hugh Mungus Construction" who grew by 13%, with "Cunning Stunts and Associates LTD" below them also enjoying 9% growth to raise hopes for their shareholders that improving times were ahead.
In the final analysis every team finished with stronger, more sustainable companies than when they took over in period 5, a testament to the skill and application shown by the management teams in what was a roller coaster of a journey through one and a half simulated years of management.
