BME OpenLab
On October 11th the BME OpenLap was opend. The BME Lab is an initiative which was designed to give students on the Biomedical Engineering curriculum the opportunity to carry out their own small hardware projects at open-access laboratory workstations. A pilot was launched with initially 2 workstations set up by the STV BME workstations in the student laboratory on the 1st floor of the building at Stremayrgasse 16. Students can use the Lab generally outside the times when the room is used for BME teaching (mainly the laboratory from GL of Biomedical Engineering in the WS).
