Three students from Kenyan universities were feted during the Africa Tech Challenge (ATC) after outwitting 256 others drawn from various institutions across Africa.
Two students emerged from Meru National Polytechnic and the third student was from Gatundu South Technical and Vocational College.
The three Kenyans were awarded in the contest sponsored by a Chinese company called AVIC INTL Project Engineering Company.
Other teams were drawn from universities in Egypt, Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
According to the Chinese company, the winners were awarded cash of an unknown amount following a four-week boot camp, that was part of the competition.
The teams were engaged in a four-week process through the AVIC INTL Vocational Education Online Platform. The contest was based on the Reading and Drafting of Construction Drawings.
The contest focused on the knowledge of engineering drawing projection, international drafting standards, operation of CAD software and the sketch designs of building floors.
Kenyans have been raising the country's flag high through innovative projects that have scooped various awards in global and continental competitions.
Two Kenyan innovators were recently feted during the 2022 Ashden Awards with their innovative ideas on clean and accessible energy and natural climate solutions.
The two Kenyans managed to outwit 200 others and bagged a Ksh3.5 million cash prize.
"Our winners and runners-up show how the continent is a hotbed of innovation, demonstrating the resilience and ingenuity of those most at risk from climate change," Ashden CEO Harriet Lamb stated.
