StarFish Medical was a gold sponsor and guest judge for the UVEC Summer 2018 University of Victoria Engineering Competition (UVEC) on Saturday, June 9th. This competition is the qualifying event for the Western Engineering Competition (WEC). UVEC will challenge engineering students to test their technical, teamwork, problem solving, and communication skills. Participants are the best and brightest students from the faculties of Biomedical, Electrical, Mechanical, Civil, Computer and Software Engineering.
UVEC summarized the event on their Facebook page: “Congratulations to the winners of UVEC Summer 2018! We had a great day of competitions with teams competing in senior design, consulting, re-engineering and programming! Winners will go to the Western Engineering Competition at the University of Manitoba in January. A huge thank you to our title sponsors, Starfish Medical Inc. andDr. Josh Chenowith – Family Dentistry for your support!”
Our guest Judge, Christine Park, reports “It was fun! Brilliant minds working together to creatively solve problems. The students were challenged to not just solve problems but think further by considering the social and economic impact their proposed solution would have on the society.”
