SPIE and ISTIA are coming together for a challenge of a new kind: 32 hours of a giant Serious Game about the real estate of the future

Saint-Denis, November 21st, 2017 – On 22 and 23 November 2017, SPIE Facilities, a subsidiary of the SPIE Group, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the areas of energy and communications, and ISTIA, the engineering school of the University of Angers, are issuing a challenge to engineering students specialising in Real-Estate Maintenance and Safety (MIS). 6 teams assisted by professionals from SPIE Facilities will have to respond to a virtual call for tenders in relation to Facility Management.

More than a competition, this challenge is an opportunity for students to apply the knowledge they have obtained during their engineering studies at ISTIA. For SPIE, the objective is to support an original educational initiative and to reaffirm its commitments to innovation, training and adding value to careers in engineering. These are commitments which it has in common with ISTIA.

The Concept: 32 hours to design the maintenance of the building of the future

The 6 teams (consisting of 5 4th-year and 5th-year students) will have to respond to a call for tenders. The year is 2030 and the teams will have to think about Facility Management solutions in the context of the creation of a new business centre, imagining the future services offered to clients.

Each team will benefit from the assistance of an employee of SPIE Facilities who is a graduate of the school and who will be by their side as the game progresses. This Serious Game, which is designed in collaboration with SPIE’s teams and with ISTIA’s teacher/researchers, places importance on the reality of the situation: heterogeneity and cohesion of the teams, real time, scripted presentation of the solution adopted, and plot twists are on the agenda for these 32 hours. A jury will award prizes to the best projects.
