Fall 2009
BioE 98/198
2 Unit(s)



About the Course:

We will be looking at various current and past engineering projects for the developing world with a focus on the social and cultural needs of various communities and how this must translated into product design requirements. This is an interdisciplinary course and requires no previous knowledge of bioengineering or other engineering fields.  

Facilitators will lead classes that consist of interactive lectures, activities, and discussions roughly every other week. These classes will be interspersed with guest lectures about specific projects relating to the topics discussed. There will also be a field trip to a lab working on a project for the developing world and a session where students will be able to assemble biomedical devices for developing world hospitals.


Please feel free to email us with any questions that you may have. We look forward to having your participation in our class.
