Technology Symposium
Hundreds of engineering, business, and science seniors gathered together this spring to present their senior design projects at the 4th Annual Tech Symposium and Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE) $100K Student Technology Venture Competition.

Tech Symposium & CITE Awards

Technology Symposium

More than 60 senior design teams competed for The University of Texas at San Antonio College of Engineering's departmental awards at the 4th Annual Tech Symposium held in April on the UTSA Main Campus. The event, which at its inception had 37 teams competing, has almost doubled in size. Because of this growth, the competition was moved from it's previous location in the H-E-B Ballroom to the UTSA Convocation Center. Ten of the teams that participated in the Tech Symposium also competed in the Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE) $100K Student Technology Venture Competition.

Technology Symposium

This year, team InfraVein/Omnibus Medical not only won the top prize in the Biomedical Engineering Departmental Awards, but also won the CITE $100K Student Technology Venture Competition. The team, which consisted of engineering and business students, created a portable device that makes it easier for medical professionals to find veins.

The Tech Symposium and CITE $100K Competition provide a public venue for UTSA senior engineering students to show off their Senior Design Projects to other students, their parents, and visiting high school students, as well as industry and government sponsors. The goal of the Senior Design Projects is for engineering seniors to apply the knowledge they have accumulated throughout their undergraduate career in the design, development, and implementation of projects they have worked on over the past two semesters. Teams also had the option to team up with business students to create a business plan and then compete in the CITE $100K Competition. This Shark Tank style competition gives students hands-on experience as early-stage entrepreneurs and encourages intercollegiate partnership for senior design projects that can translate into new startup companies.
