FOR 2020-2021

Embark on an exciting and meaningful journey with us by joining one of our project teams!

EWBOx's projects run from the start of the Michaelmas term (Early October) to the end of Hilary term (Mid-March) every year. Scroll down for more information on the projects.

Application for projects will open after the Launch Event on 3rd Week of Michaelmas Term. Join our mailing list for the latest updates.

Programming and community engagement are at the core of our strategy. We invest heavily in supporting the development of integrated solutions and delivering reliable tools to those who need them most. Together, we hope to engineer a better future.

INTRODUCTION TO OUR PROJECTS

1. MACHINE LEARNING

FOR COVID-19 MEDICAL IMAGE ANALYSIS

This project aims to investigate Machine Learning (ML) methods for processing biomedical image data, with a particular focus on identifying COVID19-related symptoms to improve early diagnosis. We will be working with PhD students from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Big Data Institute

Technology Class

2. USING ROBOTICS

FOR LANDMINE DETECTION

We aim to design, build, and test a prototype landmine detection robot that can navigate the potentially rough terrain of a minefield. With over 100 million landmines still buried and armed in places all over the planet today, the problem of landmine contamination is very real, current, and severe.

Pipetting Samples and Test Tube

3. BIOENGINEERING

FOR BLADDER INCONTINENCE

This project seeks to design and produce an ultrasound-based solution to monitor bladder fullness along with a sleep app to monitor sleeping patterns to alert users of urinary incontinence, a problem that affects millions of people around the world.

4. YOUTH OUTREACH

PROJECT

Our program inspires the future generation of engineers through interactive, hands-on workshops where they learn how to design solutions for issues such as clean water and electricity shortages.

We work locally with schools in Oxfordshire, as well as internationally, particularly in rural India.

 

We offer STEM ambassador training to those passionate about sharing the importance of engineering to students.

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.
