Synergy Projects 2021

2021 was a real challenge for the Synergy class. All lectures were online, many of our partners were unavailable due to the pandemic. However, the students rose to these challenges and have produced some fantastic projects. 

This year the class expanded to include 4th year Computer Science, 4th year bio-engineering and MSc in BioEngineering. This resulted in 14 teams working on projects that included apps to help people to take their drugs on time, make hospital operating rooms more efficient, or provide a bartering service for refugee camps. Many more great ideas have been developed into working prototypes.

We are immensely proud of the solutions that the students have created.  Each team has produced a 2 minute video summary and a text summary of their project, listed below.  Some of the projects are now open source with the details in the project summaries.
