Nanotechnology Summer Camp

By Marquise WalkerComments Off on Nanotechnology Summer Camp

Tomorrow July 25 kicks off the start of a week of new and exciting things for high school students looking to learn more about nanotechnology.

Students will explore the mysteries of matter at the level of atoms and molecules. At the nanoscale(there are 25,400,000 nanometers to an inch), copper can become transparent and aluminum combustible. They will learn about the unexpected behavior of materials at the nanoscale in interactive discussions, hands-on activities, and lab tours. Students will even discover how we can mimic nature to make better sticky tape and stain-proof pants. No science knowledge is required.

Good luck students, we look forward to having you and posting about your experiences!

Biomedical Engineering Summer Camp

By Marquise WalkerComments Off on Biomedical Engineering Summer Camp

Tomorrow July 11 kicks off the start of a week of new and exciting things for high school students looking to learn more about biomedical engineering.

Students will explore the role of a biomedical engineer in designing procedures and equipment that assist in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and injury, make medical testing less intrusive, and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. Team projects will acquaint students with basic engineering design tools and the instrumentation used in medical settings.

Good luck students, we look forward to having you and posting about your experiences!

Taubman Complex Progress

By Marquise WalkerComments Off on Taubman Complex Progress

As we make our way through summer we move closer to the opening of the newest building on campus, the Taubman Complex. The Taubman Complex was designed with Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) in mind as it aims to bring together biomedical engineering, robotics, life sciences and architectural engineering under one roof. The building will feature new lab spaces and studio classrooms to build upon the idea of theory and practice.

1

The move in date for the Taubman Complex is set for July 5, 2016. As the day approaches construction is starting to wind down as they move closer to completion and begin stocking it with equipment and furniture.  Be sure to check out some of the sneak peek photos posted below.

Immediate Internship Position at Beaumont Hospital

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on Immediate Internship Position at Beaumont Hospital

This was forwarded to me by our alum Michael Newton on behalf of Erin Baker. Please contact directly.


I lead the orthopaedic implant retrieval program at Beaumont Hospital’s Royal Oak, MI campus. Our program is expanding from a 3-hospital to 8-hospital collection this year. I am hoping to hire a Biomedical Engineering student (or similar degree) beginning in June 2016. The position would last through April/May 2017, and the student would be hired as 36-hour/week intern. However, the position may not require 36 hours/week every week.

I am looking for someone who is hands-on and motivated. Ideal candidate has an interest in biomaterials, enjoys microscopy, learning new equipment/techniques, a research lab environment in a hospital setting, writing and other forms of communication (e.g. presentations, abstracts), and working in a small team (our lab/department is staffed by 8 engineers and 2 research coordinators). Biology and/or musculoskeletal anatomy knowledge preferred.

This is a great position for students interested in applying to medical and graduate school, or interested in research careers post-graduation.

Please have any interested student email me directly (erin.baker@beaumont.org<mailto:erin.baker@beaumont.org>), with their resume, cover letter, and a technical writing sample. Interviews will be scheduled immediately.

Thanks,
Erin

1:00 – 1:30 p.m.  EDT
www.engineeringunleased.com

Have you been looking for more ways to expand the learning of your students? Or maybe you are looking for a way to bridge together what students are learning and the real world entrepreneurial side that struggles to find its way into the classroom. Well for the answers to this questions and many others be sure to join us on this webinar focused on the entrepreneurial mindset.

Dr. Eric Meyer and Dr. Mansoor Nasir’s teaching approach is to give all students in biomedical engineering multiple opportunities to practice entrepreneurially minded learning (EML). Discover how they developed EML modules centered on the theme of Quantified-Self (QS) devices. The presenters will describe how this project has impacted their early faculty career development, led to course revisions, and is currently being utilized by faculty around the country.

All participants will be given access to the EML activities utilizing QS devices to implement in their own classrooms.
