Biomedical Engineering II

Prerequisite:

None

Credit:

0.5

Grade:

11, 12

Students will investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they identify problems and strategize to design solutions to a variety of health challenges in the context of real-world, human-centered cases via design thinking. Students will learn to identify problems/ needs, brainstorm solutions, and creatively think to develop prototypes using simple materials. Throughout the semester, students will explore user-centered design as they develop an understanding of the role of “empathy” in biomedical engineering problems and take a hands-on approach to engineering innovative solutions while learning about topics like: bioelectronics, biomaterials, bioinstrumentation, and rehabilitation engineering.
