    Engineering Competitions like DARPA??

    Hi,
    Does anyone know engineering competitions like DARPA, BAJA-SAE that are open to universities other than US? The competitions we are thinking to participate must have a practical exposure like building something rather than mere theoretical design.
    Thanks!!

    I think national instruments make such competitions and not only in the US, www.ni.com and search for something like this.

    X - Prize

    There are also a number of Micromouse competitions worldwide, which cover a broad range of engineering disciplines.
