The University of Akron’s Biomedical Engineering Design team consists of over 40 undergraduate and graduate students. We were founded in 2014 by the chair of UA’s BME department, Dr. Brian Davis, along with a group of students dedicated to solving medical problems. We collaborate with medical professionals and various organizations to solve problems in the medical field through the design and augmentation of devices and procedures. Successful projects have gone on to win student competitions and grants which are applied towards commercialization in order to get our innovations in the hands of those in need of solutions.
With your help, we can improve the lives of many, one solution at a time.

We are looking for enthusiastic students who enjoy "hands-on" activities to help or lead a number of projects related to solving the needs of patients and/or children with disabilities. You will have the opportunity to positively engage with the community and be mentored by experienced engineers! If you are interested in actively participating in our organization please email our President, Travis Pero at tdp33@zips.uakron.edu or our organization's email at bmedesign@uakron.edu!
