BME Design Awards and Lecture Series
The aim of the Tong Biomedical Engineering Design Awards is to encourage biomedical engineering (BME) students to design and create engineered prototypes of their ideas for the potential pursuit of new business ventures in biomedical industries. The awards accomplish this by promoting and rewarding innovative BME undergraduate design prototypes.
Invited speakers address the entire BME design class at a special mid-semester event for BME students. The lectures are given by successful entrepreneurs and innovators in the biomedical industry and are designed to appeal to students, staff and faculty in biomedical engineering and biological and medical science. A reception follows the presentation, offering students, staff and faculty an opportunity to talk with the distinguished guest in an informal setting.

The Tong Biomedical Engineering Design Awards and the Distinguished Entrepreneur Lecturer Series are made possible by a generous gift from the Tong Family Foundation (UW-Madison alumni Peter and Janet Tong).
