Title: Both Vanderbilt and Northwestern have a Biomedical Engineering Design Course, at the Senior Level ''


1
Both Vanderbilt and Northwestern have a
Biomedical Engineering Design Course, at the
Senior Level ...
  • This discussion will only cover the senior
    design course at Vanderbilt, the long term goals
    of this project are held in common

Both also have introductory design ...

Overview
  • History
  • Current Structure
  • Process Evaluation - first term
  • Process Evaluation - second term
  • Output(s)
  • Example Projects
  • Goals of this ERC

3
History (Vanderbilt Sr. Design Course)
  • 1989 - Optional 3 credit senior year
    (lab/project) few students
  • 1990 - Optional 3 credit (lecture/project) 9
  • 1991 - Required 3 credit 24?

    project) 60
  • 1998 Continuing, required, 53 this year

4
Design in Biomedical Engineering
  • An integration of the engineering and life
    science backgrounds of senior biomedical
    engineering students through the presentation of
    design principles and case studies of medical
    devices and systems. A semester () design
    project is required, with oral, written and
    tangible communication of work performed.

5
Design at Vanderbilt
  • Web enhanced
  • Lectures by instructor safety, consulting,
    professionalism, brainstorming, reverse
    engineering, forensics, Informatics
  • Short project (3 week)
  • Homework projects
  • Guest lectures safety, patents, clinical trials,
    jobs, QA/QI, databases, internships
  • Semester project, reporting - oral, web,
    proposal, progress reports, poster, final paper,
    ...

6
Design Facilities Supplied
  • Microsoft Office Professional (MS grant)
  • Microsoft Visual Studio (MS grant)
  • Computer facility network
  • designsafe (designsafe grant)
  • model shops, machine shop
  • design lab
  • Microsoft FrontPage
  • CAD planned (SolidWorks)
  • Stereolithography desired
  • Electronics Workbench

7
Project Solicitation
  • Vanderbilt Request letter to past sponsors
    likely sponsors, on campus off, academic
    industrial.
  • Some - strictly single assistive technology or
    rehabilitation project.
  • Others - range from this plan to a list of canned
    generalist projects

8

12
Student Evaluation Summary
  • Web postings - appreciated
  • Student web access - learned/useful
  • E-mail - efficient
  • Plan to continue/upgrade
  • Industrial projects - more needed!
  • Course via web? TBA

13
Goal 1
  • Development of a web-based resource for the
    capture and archiving of undergraduate student
    design projects in Biomedical Engineering. We
    propose to continue our current practice of
    archiving all student projects via the web, and
    make these generally available to the world...

14
Goal 2
  • Development of a web-based resource for capture
    and dissemination of case studies for use in
    instruction outside of design. We propose to
    build a case file of projects and examples that
    can be used generally in precursor courses in
    this and other disciplines.

15
Goal 3
  • Development of a library for design instruction,
    consisting of recorded lectures, PowerPoint
    presentations, course outlines, electronic texts,
    etc. We plan to archive information as it
    becomes available from other sources. We plan to
    implement NetShow and NetMeeting technologies in
    our instruction. We will develop outreach
    services.

16
Goal 4
  • Dissemination of studies relevant to taxonomic
    analysis of design instruction at Vanderbilt,
    Northwestern, and co-operating institutions. We
    propose to offer our design courses as examples
    for analysis immediately upon initiation of this
    work. We plan to add to the definition of design
    as currently espoused by the Whitaker Foundation.

17
Goal 5
  • Development of a site for collection of and
    dissemination of design projects from industry,
    academia, and entrepreneurs. We propose to offer
    exchanges of projects between any industry and
    university, facilitating this interchange via a
    common web site and tools such as NetMeeting.

18
Goal 6
  • Development of inter-institutional and
    interdisciplinary design efforts and
    collaborations. With integration of tools such
    as NetMeeting and e-mail, and exchange
    agreements, there should be an ability to have
    the project source, advisor, and student in three
    locations. We have had experience with two,
    three just requires exchanges of effort.

19
Goal 7
  • Development of improved methods for design
    instruction. The long term goal of this effort
    is an improvement in the conduct of design in
    Biomedical Engineering, on all academic levels.
    Improved Industrial interaction is an
    additionally anticipated outcome.

20
Vision
  • Education in Biomedical Engineering Design will
    be impacted by improvements in technology and
    close scrutiny and improvement of the mode and
    content of instruction and learning methods in
    the field.
