Undergraduate Civil Engineering students from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering took part in their own internal Enginuity Competition as part of their module 'Commercial Management'.

The students were split into 25 teams, and competed over 6 rounds, or one and a half simulated years, between January and April 2020.

THE FINAL RESULT:  "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 "Tenacity" who maintained their 70+ points lead at the top of the table in the final round to deservedly become the University of Manchester Enginuity 2020 Champions with an impressive finishing score of 1,714 pts, and their success owed much to them demonstrating one of the guiding principles in running a successful business, consistency, having led the competition since period 7.

Behind the Champions "ACE" held onto the Runners Up spot, but they were put under real pressure by an impressive final round by "STAYREAL" whose 17% growth saw them claim the 3rd spot. Overall nearly every team posted positive growth figures in period 10, with "D.H" in particular posting a stunning 29% improvement that propelled them an amazing 14 places up the table from 22nd to 8th, and we can only wonder what they would have achieved if the competition had continued. Encouragingly at the wrong end of the table both "Tomato" and "ZzzZxx" finished strongly, with 24% and 10% growth respectively.

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.
