INSPIRING STUDENT COLLABORATION
The Queen's Biomedical Innovation Team aims to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical engineering, explore practical applications of the engineering curriculum and promote interdisciplinary collaboration to solve common problems within the field of medicine.
The Queen's Biomedical Innovation Team strives to develop projects spanning multiple areas of biomedical technology. Our projects aim to utelize cutting-edge mechanical, electrical, and chemical systems to design and manufacture physical solutions.
The team is comprised of ninety undergraduate students spanning all years and faculties of study at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The team is supported by a handful of professors and graduate student advisors.
Queen's Biomedical Innovation Team (QBiT) is an undergraduate student-run, interdisciplinary design team focusing on biomedical device design and innovation. In its fifth year of operation, the team consists of ninety members in mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering, kinesiology, biology, biotechnology, and more. The team emphasizes collaboration between disciplines to create a comprehensive and fully-realized final product. The QBiT team strongly believes in education through application, and thus the team's projects focus primarily on problem identification, prototyping design, and testing phases of product development. The team aims to compete in numerous international competitions per year, depending on the nature of the projects undertaken. QBiT also focuses its diverse knowledge base on providing learning opportunities for both the students on the team and other interested members of the community. The team organizes case competitions, speaker series, and collaborations with other design teams to expand the team's potential and cultivate the principles of biomedical innovation at Queen's and in the greater society of academia.
The executive team consists of eight directorial managers supported by eight project managers leading the design sub-teams. The efforts of the team are supported by the Queen's University Faculty of Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Alma Mater Society, and the Human Mobility Research Centre (HMRC) operated out of the Kingston General Hospital in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
