In the final round, the campus of the Engineering Faculty will witness the conquest of the winning contestant. In addition, the competition will conclude with the award of the first three winning teams that will be awarded with material and promotional prizes in recognition of their efforts and as an incentive to achieve greater merits and excellence.

It is worth mentioning that the NTRA sponsors the competition with 50 thousand Egyptian pounds.
