Student Clubs & Projects

Main content start

The Uytengsu teaching lab welcome student groups from across the School of Engineering. If you are interested in working in the teaching lab, check out the reservation process or email lab management.

Student Group Mentors are available. Student group mentors are experienced folks that are selected to advise a specific group with their project. This is a generous resource the Uytengsu teaching lab offers for students. Any student group can nominate an experienced mentor that fit their project needs. For more information on this benefit, contact Jeffrey or Mong.

Addicera Therapeutics

Our primary goal is to engineer a cutting-edge biomedical device that will administer medication to patients in a temporally dynamic and efficient manner via transdermal delivery. Our initial focus is devising a mechanism to facilitate this dynamic transdermal delivery of a bio-compatible substance. Once this objective has been achieved, we will focus on formulating a medicinal compound compatible with our mechanical system, enabling automated and dynamic medication delivery.


Chem-E-Car is a competition held at the annual AIChE conference. Working in teams, students build a car the size of a shoebox that starts and stops on a chemical reaction of their choosing. The car has to travel a specified distance, carrying a specified amount of weight—which teams discover the day of the competition. Other components include a poster, presentation, and technical report on the chemical, mechanical, and safety aspects of the car. We welcome students of all majors, any time of the year, for any length of time. Meetings occur weekly. Email to be added to our Slack.


The prevalence of concussions among athletes participating in contact sports is a growing concern... our team is developing a wearable chest band called NeuroBeat, which will continuously monitor the athlete's heart rate variability (HRV) during play. The device is based on the physiological link between concussions and autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysregulation, which can be detected by changes in HRV. Our aim is to improve concussion diagnosis and monitoring on-site, enabling a clear return to play for collegiate athletes.
