According to the group of students from University of Science and Technology-UD, the product Safety Coat aimed to ensure the safety of life and the property for technology-based motorbike drivers and motorbike riders late at night through desolate places.
The product included 02 main parts: Shirt and Device. The shirt was designed like a normal jacket but it has an extra layer of anti-cut fabric to minimize the risk of impact when robbery occurs.
Projects and products of students of
University of Science and Technology -UD
are all creative and feasible
The device was designed for GPS positioning, allowing sending S.O.S signals to authorities for timely assistance and rescue. In the coming time, the product would continue to be improved and perfected in terms of designs and technology so as to meet the demands of different users.
Projects and products of students from University of Science and Technology-UD attended the EPICS-2021 Final Round also included: Smart Medicine Box; Anti-Flood Device; Flexible bouy tent; Medical protective mask; Equipment to support sitting position warning.
Medical protective mask is a useful and timely technology product
that will help prevent COVID-19 pandemic
The EPICS contest organized by USAID BUILD-IT Project and STEM Program of DOW Vietnam Company attracted the participation of 180 students of leading engineering and technology universities in Vietnam.
Through training courses, research and practical experiences during 12 weeks, students were guided and accompanied by lecturers, experts to help them experience the EPICS Design Process.
EPICS is a journey of creation, research and continuous improvement
to bring out useful projects and products to the community
The core spirit was derived from the needs of stakeholders, from which together come up with technical solutions to solve practical problems with knowledge and interdisciplinary skills, STEM to make projects/ products.
Research results were continuously improved through feedback and experience ofthe user and the market to come up with an end product that was applicable, feasible and effective, serving the community.
