Finding well qualified experts is not an easy thing in the energy sector. For this reason E.ON puts high priority to guide the youth well in advance during their studies and to become attractive.


To comply with these goals we created an online engineering competition called Challenge.on 4 years ago. The efficiency of the contest is proved by the numbers: more than a hundred energy, electrical and mechatronic engineer students apply yearly to compete with each other in an "electrifying" challenge.

One of the main strengths of the competition is the "real life" experience which is assured by the electrical engineering case study exercises developed by E.ON's colleagues which applicants face in the online rounds. Thanks to this process, competitors can peer into what it is like to be an electrical engineer in real.

Online qualification rounds are followed by an online semi final with the participation of the 20 best teams. Finally, the luckiest and cleverest 4-5 teams get to the live final organized in the E.ON headquarters situated in the beautiful Széchenyi square.
