Keysight Innovation Challenge 2021 Is Now Accepting Entries!

Great ideas start small and grow big. They’re born from innovators unafraid to break barriers in the face of challenges, who go on to change the world and inspire others to do the same.

Now, more than ever, the world needs innovators. Students like you, who are as diverse as the world today. We need change, and you are the key. Will you rise to the challenge?

One Idea Is All It Takes

Keysight Technologies is inviting graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in a historically Black college or university (HBCU) to participate in the Keysight Innovation Challenge 2021. Students will compete via online written and video submissions in one of two tracks. Three finalists from Track 1 will go on to compete in a live virtual event in September 2021.

First place winners will receive a $2,500 cash prize and Keysight test equipment, as well as an informational interview or summer internship, depending on grade level. The winning team’s HBCU will receive Keysight test equipment valued at $15,000.
