Course title 1 clinical rotations for bme l.jpg
Course Title (1): Clinical Rotations for BME

  • Purpose

    • Introduction to the end-user of medical device development

    • Observation of medical procedures

    • Forum for interaction and discussion with medical personnel

  • Course description

    • 3 hours/week + 2 procedures individually arranged

    • Each session: lecture, tour/demonstration, discussion

    • Student evaluation: attendance, weekly reports, other written assignments

Course title 2 design of biomedical systems and devices l.jpg
Course Title (2): Design of Biomedical Systems and Devices

  • Apply the principles of engineering design from recognition of need to a fully-tested product

  • Organize and manage a design project and work effectively in a team to complete the project

  • Incorporate biocompatibility, regulatory issues, and other considerations and constraints pertinent to medical devices, into the design process

  • Apply knowledge of natural physiological systems to the design of their replacements, and to devise means to overcome constraints in doing so.

Course title 3 entrepreneurship for engineers l.jpg
Course Title (3): Entrepreneurship for Engineers

  • Provides the undergraduate engineering student with the fundamental tools necessary to build a business plan around a technical innovation

  • Developed along parallel paths:

    • Introduce business fundamentals necessary to plan, and potentially operate, a business

      • The topics covered include: Creativity, Innovation and Intellectual Property; Planning the Venture; Developing a Business Plan; Financing the Venture; and Launching the Venture.
