The MIT Medical Device Design course is back!
Do you have a clinical challenge that needs a new medical device?
Clinicians and corporate sponsors are invited to submit project proposals to work with teams of MIT engineering students to create prototype solutions to address an “I wish I had” need that they experience in their practice. We are actively seeking projects with mechanical and/or electronic challenges, where the problem is defined, but the solution space is open.
From February – May, small teams of student will work with guidance from mentors and the project proposers to follow a fast paced efficient 14 weeks design process, culminating in proof-of concept-prototypes. Taught for over a decade, this course has resulted in ongoing collaborations, papers, patents and even a few startups. (And many well-trained engineers who have gone on to great careers in the medical device industry.)
- Two page proposals due – January 5, 2022 – Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
- Finalists notified – January 17, 2022
- Presentation to students for final selection – February 2 & 7, 2022
