Hands-On Curriculum

From motors that spin at a rate proportional to how hard you flex your forearm (pictured above) to designing a drug delivery pump, BME design projects integrate the design process with a hands-on learning experience to teach students how to develop solutions to engineering problems. After, several semesters of going through the design process, students implement what they have learned in their senior capstone.
