BME 450 ~ Biomedical Engineering Design I



The goal of this course is to provide the opportunity for senior biomedical engineering students to both integrate and continue to grow their engineering knowledge by accomplishing “real world” engineering design projects. In addition to project activity, students are provided educational resources addressing ethics and professionalism, manufacturing and standards, and intellectual property.
