  • ASBME Makeathon Kick Off Event

    Fri, Feb 17, 2017 @ 05:55 PM - 07:00 PM

    Biomedical Engineering

    Student Activity


    The Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California have recognized the need to provide students with real-life, application-based challenges to students interested in the biomedical field. This event provides students interested in biomedical related fields a hands-on opportunity to solve a real-world problem in a collaborative environment. Students are presented with a research-based challenge, and have a limited amount of time and resources to solve the challenge. By working in teams, students engage in an interdisciplinary sharing of knowledge in order to solve a time-sensitive case. During the competition, corporate representatives and graduate students act as mentors, providing feedback to students, and offering advice. Students from other universities are invited to compete to provide exposure to Viterbi-�s innovative and collaborative environment and to foster bonds with students and organizations from other schools.

  • ASBME Makeathon Competition

    Sat, Feb 18, 2017 @ 07:30 AM - 12:00 AM

    Biomedical Engineering

    Student Activity


    The Makeathon is a hackathon for designers instead of coders. In 30 hours, 18 teams of 4-5 people will brainstorm, design, and CAD a device under material and functional constraints. At the eight hour mark, teams will present preliminary designs to a panel of judges who will deliberate and select five teams that will move on to device fabrication. These five teams will utilize the USC Fabrication Lab to construct their designs from a variety of materials and methods. All teams will prepare a final presentation to be delivered to the panel of judges as well as the rest of the students that will cover design motivations, device functionality, impact on the field or on client needs, as well as other device- and field-related information. There will be one grand prize winner chosen from the four teams sent to production and two runner-up winners chosen from the remaining teams based on final presentations. Though biomedical engineering students are the target demographic, undergraduates from other fields will also be encouraged to participate.
