Outstanding Honours Project Award information

Nominations are sought for this award in October each year.

Philosophy

The SMBE (SA) Outstanding Honours Project Award is an annual award provided by the SMBE (SA) to a biomedical engineer for their superior work towards their honours’ project. The award is based on practicality of the design, project development and outcomes and explanation of work at exposition day held at Flinders University of South Australia (FUSA).

 

Process

To be judged on Honours Project Expo Day at Flinders University of SA each year by three nominated SMBE (SA) council members at the time nominated by FUSA for judging to occur.  The judging would usually occur in the morning of the Expo Day and the presentation of the prize would usually be done shortly after lunchtime of Expo Day.  Judging criteria will be based on the following:

  • The verbal explanation given of the project
  • The working model demonstration
  • Achievement of the project aim
  • The practical application of the project
 

The Award

The award is in the form of a $500.00 cash prize, a certificate and 12 months free membership to the SMBE (SA).

The prize could be won by two students who shared a project.  It would be assumed to be a 50:50 split of the prize, hence two cheques and two certificates will be available on the day and two SMBE (SA) memberships for 12 months

Recipients of special awards are noted by FUSA in each Graduation Ceremony handbook.

 

Conditions

  • The winning student and runners up are expected to write a short article for the SMBE (SA) newsletter summarising their project.
  • A photo should be taken of the project and the presentation of the award for inclusion in the next SMBE (SA) newsletter.
 

Nominations

The information on this page is given by FUSA to all final year project students studying Biomedical Engineering.  Please contact Honorary Secretary for further information.
