Vision

Vision

  • A national biomedical product design competition:

  • competitive opportunity to learn about the design, development and commercialization process

  • brings the academic and industrial biomedical engineering communities together to learn, and create commercially valuable innovations.


Goals

Goals

  • To encourage and recognize the development of innovative, commercializable medical devices and technologies by entrepreneurial student teams (E-Teams) from BME programs and other disciplines.

  • Create awareness and interest in entrepreneurship among students and faculty

  • Expand engagement of industrial partners in the educational process


E teams

E-Teams

  • E-teams are multidisciplinary teams of students, faculty, and industry advisors who work together to develop a product or technology with potential for commercial success. E-Teams bring learning beyond the classroom and into the real-life experience of commercial development.


Objectives
