HealthHacks November 4 - 5, 2017

The VCU School of Engineering is proud to host the second year of HealthHacks which will take place on November 4 - 5, 2017 at VCU’s Monroe Park Campus in the East Engineering Building. It is a 24 hour period of intense innovation and problem-solving. Students will form in interdisciplinary groups of up to 4, and by the end of the 24 hour period will have a concrete solution, whether it be a rapid prototype, a solidworks 3D design, a new phone app - the options are endless. Have an idea for a solution to a medical problem? Bring it. Assemble a team while at HealthHacks and devote the hackathon to finally developing the solution. Don't have an idea? Come and be challenged by problems pitched from patients, medical doctors, clinicians, and biomedical engineers. 

Academics at the School of Engineering

VCU’s School of Engineering

The Virginia Commonwealth University School of Engineering strives to provide students with a well-rounded educational experience. In addition to meeting rigorous academic demands, our students find time to be active in research and student organizations, allowing them to develop leadership and collaborative skills both in and outside the classroom.

You will find students studying in groups throughout the halls of the School of Engineering. The school’s team environment helps students stay focused as they tackle difficult projects and engage in group projects. Often, you will come across “solutions in progress” on the dry erase boards, strategically placed throughout the building.

We actively provide advice and guidance as students plan their class schedules and develop a career focus. Always looking forward, we encourage our students to pursue internships during their tenure at VCU and provide career services to aid in the search for employment after graduation.
