In 2020, Cal Poly’s Biomedical Engineering Department changed the name of one of their existing labs, the QPLUS lab, to the TECHE lab. TECHE stands for Transforming Engineers Through Hands-On Engagement and is a lab where biomedical engineering students can work together on projects, prototype ideas, and create solutions that help improve the lives of those who have disabilities.

Since renaming the lab 2 years ago, the biomedical engineering department has not done any other updates to the branding of the TECHE lab and does not currently have a logo to represent the lab. The TECHE lab is a large reason why many students say yes to coming to Cal Poly and being a part of the biomedical engineering department. This is why it is so important to create a logo and branding that represents the lab and its importance to Cal Poly.

I will be working with the labs' director and department chair of the biomedical engineering department to create a logo for the TECHE lab. This logo can be used for all sorts of things such as a largescale window design, letterheads that will be sent to possible donors, and t-shirts. The success of this project will be measured by the approval of the logo and branding from the labs' director, who is also the department chair of the biomedical engineering department.
