Track Coordinator: Mark Gartner (email@example.com)
Students choosing the Medical Product Engineering (MPE) Track will leverage the medical product design process to identify unmet clinical needs and develop products that contribute to human health and welfare. Facets of this process include customer discovery,
design conceptualization and prototyping, identification of appropriate regulatory and reimbursement pathways, and application of key elements of the FDA Quality System Regulation with particular focus on the Design Controls. In addition, MPE requires
student exposure to other elements unique to the medical product design process including clinician, patient, and caregiver interaction, risk identification and management, economic considerations, and implementation of computer-aided design and simulation
tools. The MPE Track provides students the option to pursue a technical or business focus via customization of individual curriculums to align with their post-graduation plans. For example, the MPE business focus intends to provide expanded exposure
to business model discovery techniques, facets of business management unique to the development of medical products, and an understanding of the marketing and management of medical products.
Approved electives are chosen to provide options to achieve a MPE technical or business focus consistent with the student’s post-graduate goals described in their
COMPREHENSIVE ELECTIVES PLAN (CEP). The CEP should reflect why selected courses are important to helping realize their post-graduate goals. The approved track electives list is not static allowing students to petition
the Track Coordinator to have new courses placed on the list.
Importantly, students may request approval from the Track Coordinator for an individual exception
of a course relevant to their CEP but not listed in the technical electives below.
NOTE : All bioengineering students must have a minimum of 4 engineering courses out of the 8 elective courses (6 track courses and 2 advanced engineering/science courses).
NOTE: CHEM 0310 (Organic Chemistry 1) and CHEM 0320 (Organic Chemistry 2) are acceptable track electives.
With proper planning, MPE students can structure their CEP to earn a minor in Mechanical Engineering, a minor in Industrial Engineering, a Certificate in Product Realization, or a Certificate in Engineering for Humanity. See
GET A MINOR for specific requirements.
