The University of Sheffield-STEM Project

雪菲爾大學科學組競賽題目


Topic overview
Bioengineering involves the application of engineering skills to enable the practice of modern medicine. It covers a wide variety of topics from building robots for surgery and developing bionic body parts to 3D tissue engineering of organs for implantation and large scale manufacture of vaccines and therapeutics.

An exciting frontier in Bioengineering is the use of wearable technologies for enhancing the quality of life for the most vulnerable people in our society – the very young, the elderly and the ill. Wearable technology is a category of electronic devices incorporated into items of daily wear, like watches and jewellery, that non-invasively sense and report in real time the status of the human body.

These reports could be tracked over extended periods of time by interfacing with a smart device and can be used in clinical decision making.

Presentation Outline
• Imagine that you are an ambitious Bioengineer and design the next generation of wearable technology for a target population of your choice.
• Outline how the device will look and function, who will it benefit and how it will improve healthcare.
• Consider if this technology can be used in poorer countries. You may build a prototype if possible and consider interfacing with an app on a         smart device.
• Here are some examples of topics, you may come up with an independent idea for a topic. You may also consider reporting on several indicators simultaneously.
o Blood glucose monitors for neonates with Type 1 diabetes.
o Gait trackers for patients Parkinson’s disease.
o Blood volume measurements of patients with kidney failure.

Lancaster University- Business Project

蘭卡斯特大學商業組競賽題目


*Note: this competition is based on the popular show “The Shark Tank” but the rules and parameters are slightly modified in order for the students to showcase their proposals clearer and to the best of their abilities. For reference, you can watch some episodes by youtube link.

The “Sharks” in the contest will be the judges assigned by Lancaster University International Study Centre.

Competition Intro/ Guidelines
• Students will present their Business Proposals to convince the “Sharks” to invest in their Business. Students will use primarily PowerPoint slides and are allowed to use videos, product / service demo and product model / prototype.
• The “Sharks” can choose to invest between $10,000 to $100,000 or not to invest at all. The student who can earn the most investment from all the “Sharks” combined wins.
• The maximum capital that the student can propose is $1,000,000.
• There is no limitation on what type of business the student will propose – so please be creative!
• The “Sharks” will be given time to ask their questions after each presentation. The questions will be focused on the following:
o Competitive Advantage – why do you think will the customer choose your product/ service over the others?
o Operations – business model, technology, and processes.
o Profitability and Growth – strategies on how the business earns its profit and its opportunities/ potential for growth.
• The “Sharks” will be focusing on your business’ Creativity, Feasibility and Profitability when deciding on their invest ment.

Presentation Outline
• Students are expected to present their business proposal focusing on the following topics:
o Product/ Service Introduction – providing an overview of the product, service and the company’s business model. This includes the amount of capital required and how the business operates.
