CROSS-CAMPUS INNOVATION: Pratt School of Engineering

The Pratt School of Engineering held the inaugural E-Fair in 2016 in conjunction with Duke I&E’s Entrepreneurship Week. The E-Fair allowed teams to show off their ideas and ventures, showcasing the Duke Engineering community’s shared passion for creation.

Beginning in 2016–17, the department of biomedical engineering will also sponsor the Duke Startup Challenge BME Prize, which will award $5,000 annually to a team using biomedical engineering to pursue entrepreneurship as a career path.

“What makes engineering special is that we create—we make things, we translate ideas into innovations that will help people and ultimately change the world. It’s exciting to see our engineering community making these ideas into reality here at Duke.”
