Senior Design Capstone Projects

Each year, biomedical engineering students partner with companies and institutions to solve real-world engineering problems by developing prototype medical devices and research instruments. We are very proud of our students’ dedication to completing their projects despite the challenges of doing so remotely.

Visit the BME seniors and the BME masters students (CMTI) design pages to peruse their projects and leave comments.
