Triumph Design Awards

Triumph Design Awards is an exciting new design competition created by Triumph with the aim of inspiring the Design Engineers of the future.

We've created a range of design briefs to get you started, each of which identifies a different challenge - some local and some global which we invite you to explore.

Choose one that excites you, and use your Design and Technology coursework as an opportunity to tackle a real world design brief set by us.

We have partnered with PTC, the CAD and simulation software developer, to offer every student a FREE personal copy of Creo and every participating school/college a FREE site licence for 500 users. Click here for more info on PTC Creo.


Open to 6th form and college students of Design & Technology, the Triumph Design Awards encourages and celebrates creative thinking, innovative problem solving and the ability to produce feasible solutions to real world challenges.

We're committed to encouraging young people to innovate and get excited by the thought of an idea evolving into a real life product. We want young design engineers to develop their engineering potential, and recognise that design engineering is an exciting and useful career that has helped shape the world we know.
