2.750 Medical Device Design

Class Info

Provides an intense project-based learning experience around the design of medical devices with foci ranging from mechanical to electro mechanical to electronics. Projects motivated by real-world clinical challenges provided by sponsors and clinicians who also help mentor teams. Covers the design process, project management, and fundamentals of mechanical and electrical circuit and sensor design. Students work in small teams to execute a substantial term project, with emphasis placed upon developing creative designs - via a deterministic design process - that are developed and optimized using analytical techniques. Instruction and practice in written and oral communication provided. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments. Enrollment limited.
