March 28 - March 29
Bio-Buddy challenges undergraduate and graduate students from across Canada to design and build an infant CPR training manikin while meeting set criteria. The competition offers students valuable experiences such as working in teams and designing, building and debugging solutions for an open-ended problem. These skills will be essential to their future careers as engineers and there are currently very few opportunities for engineering students to apply design ideas to the biomedical domain. The competition will additionally serve as a platform to highlight and acknowledge student accomplishments and create a product that will impact the well-being of Canadians. Bio-Buddy Biomedical Engineering Design Competition will be hosted at the end of March 2019 at the University of Ottawa.
