ENSTONE, UK – The search for bright, budding engineering talent in the 2017 edition of the INFINITI Engineering Academy has concluded. Now, the seven winners from each region – Asia & Oceania, Canada, China, Europe, Mexico, the Middle East and United States – join a 12-month placement working on both automotive and Formula One™ technologies.

The INFINITI Engineering Academy is the result of the technical partnership and strong collaboration between INFINITI Motor Company and the Renault Sport Formula One Team. To become one of the seven winners, applicants completed an online engineering puzzle test (designed by puzzle and brainteaser experts Brilliant.org) as part of a multi-stage recruitment process. The 10 best applicants were then invited to participate in a final competition in their specific region where the seven finalists secured their spot.

“With every edition of the Academy, we are more and more impressed by the amount of interest received from students all over the world and the incredible level of the talent attracted,” said Tommaso Volpe, global director, INFINITI Motorsport. “Students have seen the accomplishments of our former Academy graduates, who have forged successful careers in both automotive and motorsport. As a result, more students than ever before want to participate to get this once-in-a-lifetime engineering experience to launch their careers. With Formula One becoming more relevant to the automotive industry, and with an increased focus of the placements this year being on the road car development, we are training a new generation of engineers who will play a key role in the crossover between the two industries.”
