Requests for New Projects

If you have a possible project idea or a problem to solve, please contact Amy Lerner or Scott Seidman to discuss consideration for next year's class.

Projects can be anything related to biomedical engineering: research instruments, clinical devices, home health care products, assistive technology, etc. They should not be exclusively research projects, and should involve the creation of some kind of prototype, device, or instrument.

The ideal project is:

Each team is mentored, and receives technical guidance from at least one member of the biomedical engineering faculty, ensuring that your project will benefit from the expertise of technical experts over the course of the year.


Students are allowed a reasonable budget for this development, but you may be asked to contribute for specialized components especially if the device prototype is destined to be delivered to your clinic or laboratory.


All customers will be asked to present their problem to the students in a special class meeting in early September.

As a part of the program you will need to:
