Xcellence High School 2019

In 2019 Flex Hungary invited high schoolers who study electrical engineering for a brand new challenge. The game started with an online technical quiz from which the best 20 teams qualified to the final. In the final held at Flex Hungary' site, contestants had to prove their theoretical and practical knowledge by solving task like programming and welding.

68 teams from 26 schools competed for the victory and the great prizes. All of the contestants enjoyed the competition very much and would happily take part in it in the future.

"The tasks were enjoyable, and the best part was that by solving the small tasks we complete a greater task (building a luminous statue with our logo). The tower-building task was really creative, and was a great way of entertainment following the professional tasks. I really enjoyed visiting the production site of Flex as well through which I could get to know Flex better." (A finalist student, 2019)

Xcellence University 2016

Participants could sign up for the competition in teams of three, the team members could come from different faculties, and even from different universities. The game started with an online quiz, which consisted of several modules (2 engineering, 1 quality assurance, 1 logistics and 1 HR module). The teams could solve any module they wanted, or all of them, and the qualification for the semi-final was based on the module with the best results for each team. The best 15 teams qualified for the semi-final from each module, so altogether 75 teams.

In the second round participants received a case study task, relevant to their studies and expertise. Finally the best 10 teams advanced to the finals, where they had to face an even bigger challenge: apart from their professional knowledge, the jury also assessed their management, cooperation and debating skills, as well as their creativity.

The teams of 24 universities participated in the 5-week competition ending on the 30 November 2016, and competed against each other in the areas of HR, logistics, and engineering (quality assurance, rework, test and debug).
