Submit your ideas!
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is excited to announce the creation of a biomedical engineering student design-and-build competition. It will be open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in engineering programs from all over Canada. It will be the first of its kind and will be hosted here at the University of Ottawa!
The competition will involve the detailed design and construction of a medical device with clearly set objectives and specifications. While the design topic is biomedical engineering, interdisciplinary teams including students from other fields of engineering are welcomed and encouraged.
The device has yet to be determined but it could be, for example, a low cost prosthesis for developing countries, a compact organ-transporter, or a low-pain injection device. There are many more possibilities, and we are asking you for your ideas!
Please send all of your suggestions for what the device should be to Laura Haya via e-mail at Laura.Haya@uottawa.ca before November 13. We are proud to have so many creative students in our faculty and we want you to be a part of this competition from its conception.
