Aggies Invent


 

Solving Problems in 48 Hours

Aggies Invent is a 48 hour intensive design experience offered at the Engineering Innovation Center (EIC), a 20,000 square foot rapid prototyping lab. The format of the experience is to engage 60 or more students in multidiscipline/multi-level teams in hands on projects that will push their innovation, creativity, and communication skills. Each event will have a specific theme and will be designed in collaboration with industry and faculty. At the final presentations, Aggies Invent teams will compete for cash awards. 1st place – $1,000, 2nd place – $750, and 3rd place – $500 per team.

The end goal is to provide students the opportunity to acquire skills essential to becoming successful innovation leaders and support them in founding startup companies.

Veterinary Medicine

April 7-9, 2017

Registration 3/06 – 3/27

Veterinary care is evolving; pet owners are looking for more personalized, convenient, and affordable resources to ensure their companions are happy and healthy. The role of the veterinarian is also changing as we seek new ways to communicate with, monitor, and support our patients both inside and outside of the hospital walls. You will be challenged to create technological strategies and solutions to improve veterinary patient outcomes. Solutions may incorporate aspects of veterinary clinical skills training, creation of sensors to monitor the health of non-verbal patients, or the implementation of new diagnostic tools to empower the veterinary team. There has never been a better time to transform veterinary care.

Texas A&M Invents for Intelligent Future will challenge three student teams to dream, design and develop technology that will make an intelligent future a reality. More information on Texas A&M Invents for an Intelligent Future.

Automation, Robotics, 3-D Printing and Drones for Construction

March 3-5, 2017

Registration CLOSED

Join us in this Aggies Invent as we research and explore new ways that buildings, roads and other structures will be built in the next 100 years. You will be challenged to incorporate the latest technology – from 3-D printing to robotics, drones, systems automation, internet of things and new materials because the job site of the future is going to look, and operate, dramatically different than it does today. The student teams who identify the most compelling and innovative solutions for building vertical or horizontal structures will win this competition and gain global exposure through our partners.
