Project Idea Submission

The Biomedical Engineering Department is pleased to solicit projects to provide service-learning opportunities for our students (freshman through senior) to develop solutions to satisfy your needs.

We seek focused, design projects with a specific biomedical goal in mind, such as the design of a device to perform a specific task in a laboratory or clinical practice. We also encourage industrial and community members to submit project ideas based on their own individualized unmet biomedical needs.

Please review the frequently asked questions regarding client obligations. Although we do not charge labor costs, we do expect you to commit to paying for any materials and supplies necessary to create a prototype for the project.

By submitting this project, you agree to the client obligations. Once submitted, your project will be reviewed by the design faculty and, if accepted, posted for the students to select at the beginning of the next semester. If selected, a student team will be in touch with you then. Projects are selected at all levels based on the determination of the design faculty and student interest. We strive to ensure project completion and continuity between semesters. Senior projects always run for a full academic year (fall and spring semesters).
