Plastic Engineering Day takes place on October 24 at DTU’s Oticon Hall in Lyngby. It is the key event for engineering students interested in career opportunities and the newest innovations in the plastics industry. The event will feature company presentations and a mini career fair, and the PROJECT PLASTIC winners will be chosen.
Plastic Engineering Day is a collaboration between the Danish Plastics Federation (Plastindustrien) and the technical universities in Denmark. This year it will take place at DTU in Lyngby, Copenhagen. It offers exciting presentations from various Danish companies with examples of plastic materials, new innovations and their impact.
In addition to the presentations, a wide range of companies will be gathered in a mini career fair. You will have the chance to meet with the companies and discuss career opportunities and plastic materials.

The winners of PROJECT PLASTIC 2019
On Plastic Engineering Day, we will elect the winners PROJECT PLASTIC, our talent competition for engineering students. The competition honors talented young people who, as a part of their engineering studies, have lead the way and shown how we can use plastic materials to create innovative solutions.
The students behind five pre-nominated projects will pitch their ideas to an expert panel. In collaboration with the participants, the panel will select the final winners.
The winner will be rewarded with 25 000 DKK, and the second and third runner up will receive respectively 10 000 and 5000 DKK. You still have the chance to subscribe your project and win.
