2.750 Medical Device Design

Class Info

Application of mechanical and electrical engineering fundamentals to the design of medical devices that address clinical needs. Throughout the term, students work in small teams on a major project to translate a clinical challenge into a proof-of-concept prototype device. Students conduct user analysis, develop design specifications, and follow a structured process to cultivate creative designs and apply analytical techniques to optimize them. They deepen their understanding of art and intellectual property by researching prior representations. Develops practical skills in prototyping and testing as well as project management. Includes lectures, problem sets and exams that focus on design fundamentals. Instruction and practice in written and oral communication provided. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments. Enrollment limited.
