The ACTIVE Cup is the engineering construction industry’s project management competition.
The high-pressure competition, which started in 1994 and takes place three times a year, gives teams experience of the whole project management process as they manage a simulated project through an execution phase of 28 weeks.
Run by Cranfield School of Management at Cranfield University on behalf of the ECITB, this hugely popular competition welcomes delegates from companies across all engineering construction industry sectors.
Up to 12 teams, each with five members, manage a project from concept through to completion. The competition enables teams to experience the whole project management process and tests a wide range of project management skills. The aim is for a team to make the most profit against their initial cost.
