Design Competitions

  • NCIIA BMEStart  
    The BMEStart Awards have been established to recognize excellence and innovation among undergraduate biomedical engineering student teams. Entries must address a medical clinical need with a clearly defined solution that can be taken to application.
    Open to all graduate and undergraduate student teams. This is a unique competition, in that judges rank entries on all aspects of biomedical commercialization, from product innovation to market need, and from regulatory strategies to social impact. The experience not only prepares students for biomedical engineering careers, but also connects them to key contacts in the industry and in their own academic institutions.
