Biomedical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering Capstone Design is a two-semester course sequence that focuses on the process of strategic clinical problem solving and innovation through evaluation of real-world diagnostic processes, current therapeutic approaches and clinical outcomes.  Students work in teams to identify and critically evaluate unmet medical or clinical needs through utilization of a biodesign and innovation process.  This process includes clinical needs finding through on-site observations, stakeholder assessments, needs statement development, concept generation, discovering customer and design requirements, regulatory, ethical, societal, and environmental considerations, and prototype development and testing.
