Unless otherwise specified in the terms and conditions, teams do not have to have an academic advisor. Competition mail groups are informed about the requirement of the academic advisor. However, it is highly recommended for you to participate in the competition with an academic advisor in order to make your work more organized and more competitive. Also if you have an academic advisor, your support requests are met more positively. The responsibilities of an academic advisor are to supervise the work of the team, to steer the team leader, and to approve the documents prepared by the team before submitting them to the competition commission. On the other hand, the advisor should not perform tasks such as designing on behalf of the team, recommending a direct design for the team, consulting more than one team for a competition, managing the teams’ operation on competition day.
All demonstrations, activities, and seminars organized by the TEKNOFEST Aerospace and Technology Festival and International Venture Fair are entirely free and open to everyone.
