Biomedical Engineering Capstone

Tackling today's clinical challenges to design real-world solutions.

Students from diverse disciplines work directly with clinicians and healthcare professionals to address their engineering design challenges.

In the last four years, our students have worked closely with more than 27 clinicians at RIH, Women & Infants, and beyond to produce 35 collaborative projects and in the process have filed 5 provisional patents and won 3 recent design competitions. 

A huge part of our success so far is due to the connections we have made with clinical faculty to identify clinical needs and provide expert guidance to students. If you have an idea for an an unmet need that you would like to collaborate on and see reduced to practice, please submit a design proposal.
