Course Description

Bioengineering 3801 / 4801 is a two semester capstone biomedical engineering design class where products are developed and prototyped using the guidance of FDA Design Control mandates. To foster a rich environment for innovation and to better instruct students in problem based learning, we partner student teams with design ideas that have been conceptualized by clinical advisors. This collaboration creates high value relationships maximizing the students’ learning experience while exposing them to best practices. This course offers unique challenges to the students; they must balance the creativity and innovation of design work with the documentation and regulations mandated by the FDA and other regulatory agencies.
