Our team develops innovative biomedical solutions for developing countries to improve the health condition in the underprivileged communities. Through this program, we would want to look for talented students who are passionate about doing innovative engineering projects for a cause. Our team would want to develop assistive devices through the use of embedded systems and machine learning.

Our projects would include the use of biomedical image processing, biomedical signal processing and machine learning to assist in uplifting the medical conditions of the more underprivileged communities. Participants will join a project-based learning approach on the topic of Biomedical Innovation Design at Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology. Subsequently, you will be working with a young and vibrant team to learn about biomedical device design, design thinking and prototyping.

The program will be a hands-on, learning by doing approach with the goal of developing a prototype that you can bring home to further develop and implement in various communities. The participants will have the opportunity to participate in competitions and conferences. Desired outputs of this program would be developing solutions and implemented in collaboration with institutes and NGOs in the ASEAN region, publishing journal papers, joining competitions and international conferences.

We are looking for students with the following talents: For those interested in working with us on hardware projects, we are interested in the following skills: Embedded systems, Circuit design, Wireless Communication and Haptics. For those interested in working with us on software projects, we are interested in the following skills: Image processing, Signal processing, Cloud computing, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, APP developer, Database/Server management Programming languages: C, C#, Python, Matlab, LabVIEW, Android Studio, Java. Successful applicants will be provided NT$10,000~NT$15,000 living allowance. For those who would require assistance for accommodation, please inform the project head during the application.
