BME 401A Description:

A hands-on design experience to provide students practical application of engineering. Working in small teams, students will either meet with possible clients to discern a biomedical problem, or bring an original idea of their own to the class. The students will work on an original design or redesign of a component or system of biomedical engineering significance. The students will be taught how to craft a project scope with the required design specifications. The design experience will require application of knowledge and skills acquired in earlier coursework; it will incorporate engineering standards and realistic constraints that include most of the following considerations: economic, environmental, sustainability, manufacturability, ethical, health and safety, FDA, social, and political. Students will prepare written reports and present their designs orally to a panel of faculty members and industrial representatives. The final product of BME 401A will be a descriptive paper design of their solution. Prerequisite: BME Senior Standing

BME 401B Description:

A hands-on design experience to provide students practical application of engineering. Working in small teams, students will work towards building a prototype of the student design which was a product of 401A. The students will be expected to design a verification and validation plan to test the prototype built. The design experience will require application of knowledge and skills acquired in earlier coursework and lab experiences; it will incorporate engineering standards and realistic constraints that include most of the following considerations: economic, environmental, sustainability, manufacturability, ethical, health and safety, FDA, social, and political. Students will prepare written reports and present their designs orally to a panel of faculty members and industrial representatives. The final product of BME 401B will be a prototype, and a descriptive paper describing their solution documenting how the prototype satisfies the design specifications, with the validation and verification results.
