The challenge, which occurs every two years, calls on students to develop skills such as teamwork, project management and communication skills to submit solutions to industry challenges.
 
The challenges posed to students include using big data to improve efficiency and how could layouts change to improve passenger boarding.

For Airbus, it is an opportunity to nurture new ideas from the imaginative and unrestrained thinking of fresh minds,” said Charles Champion, Airbus executive vice president, Engineering.
