Team Competition
October 20–21, 2017
$100 per team (early bird)

Innovation Encounter is a competitive collegiate event that cultivates:

  • Critical thinking
  • Teamwork
  • Time management
  • Entrepreneurial mindset

Student teams step out of the classroom and into a “real world” arena to develop a viable solution to a realistic industry problem. Nationwide, collegiate teams from the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN) engage with industry professionals who evaluate solutions presented by the students. (Eight team limit from KEEN schools).

Each team is expected to support their solutions with a business plan. Technical skills are tested and risks are assessed within limited time constraints. Students are challenged to efficiently manage their time individually and jointly.

Comments Off on SB3C Conference Presentation and Student Design Competition

To add on to a busy week Dr. Meyer will also be representing Lawrence Technological University at the SB3C Conference in National Harbor, MD from June 29 – July 2. This conference will focus on the impact of biomechanics on healthcare.

Dr. Meyer’s presentation will cover the department’s most recent project Quantified Self (SB3C2016_MeyerQS4EML). He will also cover a summer biomechanics project (SB3C2016_WeaverTrain).

A senior project group will also be presenting their research on a new adaptation to the traditional knee scooter (SB3C2016_FoldGoScooter).

Good Luck Guys!

Students Attend Coulter College Competition in Coral Gables, FL

Comments Off on Students Attend Coulter College Competition in Coral Gables, FL

LTU had six BME students attend a conference/competition in Coral Gables Florida. Lawrence Tech was joined by 19 other schools. Coulter College is a training program focused on translation of biomedical innovations. Student design teams are guided by faculty and clinical experts through a highly dynamic process designed to help them better understand how innovations can meet clinical needs, while providing tools and approaches used to evolve identified problems into novel solutions. The program is supported by the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.

This was the 2nd year in a row that Lawrence Tech applied and was accepted as one of the schools to attend.

Coulter College 2015

Comments Off on Coulter College 2015

Last year a team of six BME students, Dr. Nasir and a Clinician entered the Coulter College Workshop which is a training program focused on translation of biomedical innovations. The LTU team, entering for the first time, came in third place out of 22 teams. The program which is part of BMES enables participants to take what they learn forward to their senior design courses. At the workshop, student design teams are guided by faculty and clinical experts through a highly dynamic process designed to help them better understand how innovations can meet clinical needs, while providing tools and approaches used to evolve identified problems into novel solutions.

Past student and faculty participants have found BMES Coulter College to be very beneficial and previous design faculty members have used the BMES Coulter College experience to enhance their design courses. In addition to the onsite activities, students will be required to complete limited pre-Coulter College assignments in preparation for the course.

The dates for the program are August 13-16, 2015 in Coral Gables, FL (southwest of downtown Miami). The faculty and student participants must be able to commit to three days (two partial days and two full days) of an intensive workshop integrating lectures, team projects and presentations.

Coulter College team applications are due April 8, 2015. Each team application must be submitted by a BME student design faculty member currently affiliated with a university who teaches or previously taught senior design (Dr. Nasir).  Those selected to participate will be eligible to receive a stipend to defray travel costs and will be provided with meals and lodging. Accepted teams will be announced in late April.

For more information about BMES Coulter College and to submit a team application, please visit: http://bmes.org/coulter

In order for the teams to work there needs to be commitment from six student. Interested students should contact Dr. Nasir ASAP. In case of interest from more than six students, priority will be given to Juniors who are preparing to start senior project in Fall 2015. However, students at other grade levels are also encouraged to consider this opportunity.

I highly encourage you to submit and also consider the design competition. Any BME faculty can help you with the abstract or other requirements for the two items:

1) BMES 2015 Conference

In order for you to attend the BMES conference you have to submit a one-page abstract format will be required this year. This format will allow reviewers to more effectively choose those abstracts which are best suited for podium presentations.

The abstract should include:

  • title
  • introduction
  • description of the materials and methods used
  • study results (including up to one figure)
  • discussion of how this work fits into the context of greater societal needs.

Please review the abstract template on the submission site: http://bmes.org/abstract

During the submission process, please select the most appropriate track & subtrack from the list provided in the online system, or choose the track and “other” if no named sessions seem appropriate. You may request to present your work in a platform or in a poster session. The technical program committee will attempt to honor your preference, but may not always be able to do so. Presentations may be scheduled on any of the three days of the meeting. All accepted presenters must register for the full meeting.

The submission deadline is April 23, 2015. A The nominal abstract processing fee of $35 is a submission fee and does not apply towards the required meeting registration.

2) BMES Design Competition:

The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) will hold its first ever Student Design Competition this year. All BMES undergraduate student members engaged in student design projects are encouraged to apply and enter the competition which is being sponsored by Medtronic.

The application deadline is May 25, 2015. The 2015 Design Theme is Bioinstrumentation!!

All design team members MUST be BMES Student Members and BMES student chapter members in good standing. Top 6 proposals will be chosen and those teams will present, via oral presentations, at BMES 2015 Annual Meeting in Tampa (Oct 7-10, specific day to be determined). At the meeting, the top 6 teams will be narrowed down to the top 3 winners. Winners will receive monetary awards. This is a great opportunity to showcase projects and to network with product development and design professionals in BME.

Coulter Team

Representing Lawrence Tech at the Coulter College competition in Florida were (L-R) LTU faculty advisor Dr. Mansoor Nasir, Danielle Manley, Akram Alsamarae, Kaitlyn Tingley, Mateusz Koper, Amanda Bukhtia, and Stephen Krammin. At right is clinical advisor, Dr. Molly McClelland, an assistant professor at the University of Detroit Mercy.

Six students from the Biomedical Engineering Department were selected to participate in the Coulter College competition in Miami, Florida. The competition involved students working in teams to address an unmet clinical need. The students participated in a four day competition in which they addressed a problem and found a novel way to solve it. Students were mentored by experts in the Biomedical field and attended lectures pertaining to FDA regulations and intellectual property. On the final day of the competition, student teams pitched their ideas in a similar format to “Shark Tank.” Lawrence Tech. placed 3rd out of 19 schools and they won the popular vote! The experience helped students understand the various steps needed to execute an idea and allowed students to interact with experts in the Biomedical field.
