Hajim Senior Design Day
Biomedical Engineering Seniors will present their senior design projects and prototypes, including demonstrations and posters discussing their design process and testing results. This year posters from all departments in the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences will be presented. The event will be followed by an engineering social from 4 - 5 PM.
The University of Rochester Biomedical Engineering Senior Design Program introduces undergraduate students to real-life problem-solving, resulting in the development of prototype medical devices or research instruments. In this two-semester program, students learn to consider biomedical engineering design in a systematic, customer-focused approach. Students are presented with problems posed by University of Rochester faculty, clinicians from the medical center, the local community, or local industry during the remainder of the year.
In solving these problems, students generate a thorough design proposal, participate in formal design reviews, develop physical prototypes, and test their devices. All design teams are expected to consider many realistic constraints, including: ethical, economic, manufacturing, social, and regulatory issues.
The event is free and open to all students, faculty, and employees of the University of Rochester community. In addition, please see the WHAM13 News story and video promoting this event, featuring BME undergrad John Sullivan and his group's project, Limbus Technology.
