Welcome to Charger Innovation Challenge (CIC)!

CIC is presented by I2C in partnership with Core Prototyping Core Prototyping | 3D Printing & Product Design, a design, manufacturing and prototyping company founded by UAH students Sam Lewis and Arthur Murray.

CIC strategically engages students in entrepreneurial activity while providing practical application of educational experience. The objective of this competition is to introduce students to real-world engineering problems and guide them through the process of product design, development and engineering. Winning designs are further vetted for product market fit and execution feasibility. Those that make it through our due diligence process are manufactured and offered for sale on our partner marketplace Printed by Core.
