Applications for our projects will open in early Michaelmas 2023!
If you are interested in joining any of the projects, please register your interest below.
EWBOx's projects run from the start of the Michaelmas term (Early October) to the end of Hilary term (Mid-March) every year.

Learning - Visual Processing
1. MACHINE LEARNING
FOR MEDICAL IMAGE ANALYSIS
Investigate Machine Learning (ML) methods for medical imaging, aiming to automate tasks that are often challenging, time-consuming, and would otherwise require a high level of medical expertise. We will partner with DPhil students from Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science.
Open to all levels of expertise in programming and ML.
2. USING ROBOTICS
FOR LANDMINE DETECTION
Design, build, and test a prototype landmine detection robot that can navigate the rough terrain of a minefield.
This project is in its 2nd year running. Building on the prototype and algorithms from the 1st year, we aim to design a dust collection system that collect and store the mud samples from the ground, which will help in the detection of lethal anti-personnel landmines.
3. Machine Learning: App Development
The overarching aim of the project is to develop an interface – for ‘teaching’ machine learning via visualisation of various machine learning techniques without needing prior mathematical expertise. For example basic techniques such as binary classification, to more complex neural networks such as MLP.
4. YOUTH OUTREACH
The EWBOx Youth Outreach team is a group of students with a passion for societal change. The project this year involves 2 main sub-groups:
1. run practical workshops in local schools to generate enthusiasm for engineering
2. design a programming Bootcamp for the sixth-form students.
Towards the end of the academic year, we are planning to expand our project overseas to a developing country with high educational inequality (previously India).
The pursuit of a cleaner and more sustainable future has been seen as a vital endeavour by researchers for several decades.
This project will focus on two primary subtopics: battery recycling and food waste management.
Each member of the team will focus on one of these two categories, carrying out detailed research to contribute to either:
1. A report discussing the battery recycling technique that will have the biggest positive impact if pursued in the future
2. A proposal for an improved waste management policy for a local organisation, with a particular focus on one food product
OUR PAST PROJECTS
Since our founding in 2014, we have embarked on a variety of projects across different engineering disciplines, addressing a spectrum of pressing issues around the world.
Some projects we have worked on include the development of Phywiz - a Physics A-level app with 200,000 users; Greater Change - a mobile donation app; and builds like a medical relief drone, water supply systems in Nepal and Peru, and medical diagnostic devices for Malaria.
