Join us at Hyderabad for the 3rd edition of ReDx – Rethinking Engineering Design Execution – a platform for engineers, medical professionals, designers, technology aficionados, innovators and big dreamers to build the next generation of healthcare technologies which would impact 5 billion people on the planet. This year’s edition is taking place at ESCI campus, Gachibowli, Hyderabad during July 5-11th.
For any further clarifications, suggestions or comments please do not hesitate to send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
This camp’s themes include:
Computer Vision & Machine Learning
Optics and Imaging
Democratizing scientific optics for broader impact through clever uses of optical imaging technologies and compact form factors.
More tracks will be announced soon!
Students who participate in the camp will have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s most renowned scientists and doctors in an ongoing collaborative process that will facilitate not only the exchange of ideas but the creation of the future of industry. They will have access to the forefront of rapid prototyping technology, including 3D scanners, 3D printers, cutting edge computing development platforms, and state of the art optics, imaging tools and electronics.
Students who volunteer at the event are crucial to making it a reality. Volunteers will help operate prototyping machinery and organize sessions for brainstorming and tutorials. These individuals will be exposed to the same expertise and technologies as the participants and will receive certificates of participation.
