The champions of last year’s steelChallenge competition. 

Registration is open for the 10th annual steelChallenge, hosted by the World Steel Association. The competition challenges students and young industry professionals from around the globe to test their skills in steelmaking to win various prizes and recognition in the steel industry.

Participants will first compete in four regions: North and South America; Europe, CIS, Middle East and Africa; Asia and Oceania; and China. This regional round of the competition will take place online (via the steeluniversity website at over a 24-hour period on January 20, 2016, where competitors will be tasked to use an electric arc furnace steelmaking simulation to produce a grade of steel that meets technical requirements at the lowest total cost.

The regional champions and best performing runners-up from the ‘Student’ and ‘Industry’ categories will be invited to compete in the World Championship scheduled for April 11, 2016 in London, United Kingdom, where they’ll use a designated simulation during a two-hour period to produce the single best result for the simulation.
