Project Idea Submission
The Biomedical Engineering Department is pleased to solicit projects to provide service-learning opportunities for our students and solutions to biomedically-relevant problems for our clients.
Students will choose their semester projects based in large part on the information you provide on this web form.
We seek focused, specific design projects. Note that these projects should be design, not research, and should have a specific goal in mind. As an example, appropriate projects for this course may consist of the design of a device to perform a specific task in your laboratory or clinical practice. Teams consist of about four students for each project, and they are encouraged to build prototypes of their designs, which are given to the clients at the end of the semester.
We encourage members of our community (patients, disabled, elderly, etc.) to submit project ideas based on their own Individualized unmet biomedical needs as well. Students have developed ideas such as a Braille watch, pill pack opener, and a customized sling.
Many of our clients have been quite pleased with the productivity and innovation demonstrated by our students. Several of the past projects have provided investigators with tools to work in new directions. Some projects have led to intellectual property with opportunities for commercialization.
For examples of projects that were conducted this past semester, review our teams' websites from last semester.
