This course integrates real work practice as a biomedical engineer with designing new products and resources to support the field.  Your projects will require familiarity with the following:

  • engineering best practices & theory
  • basic science and medical background of what problems & diseases your are proposing to cure, solve
  • appropriate materials
  • patent literature
  • Engineering & business standards
  • market & competitive intelligence
  • demographic snapshot
  • business skills
  • presentation skills

You will have the opportunity to develop this understanding and familiarity as you pursue your projects.

You will use the science, medical and engineering resources, gain exposure to the business literature, and learn about government data such as census tracking and how to incorporate that if needed.
