The biomedical engineering and life science faculty have been busy this past summer implementing new activities and opportunities for our freshman through senior students. Returning students have noticed that room E108 – Bioinstrumentation Lab now has a new look. The biomechanics gait analysis laboratory has secured funding from the DENSO Foundation to support research in human and machine interaction (see story on page xx). We are very excited about this collaboration with the electrical engineering and robotic engineering programs. Freshman students are enjoying working in the new collaboration space in room E109. When you are on your way to the Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope or the BioMEMS laboratories, stop by to check out the new learning environment.
The Life Science Advisory Board welcomes two new members. Mrs. Janelle Schrot from Materilize (MIMICS suite) and Dr. Ren You from Terumo Heart Inc. We look forward to working with these members and organizations as we continue to improve and expand the biomedical engineering program.
Finally, the biomedical engineering program thanks all the students and alumni who accepted the invitation to participate in the focus group meetings in the spring semester. The focus groups provided valuable input on the needs and expectations of program graduates. The biomedical engineering program educational objectives articulate the expected capabilities of graduates 3 to 5 years after graduation and they are:
- Graduates of the BSBME program apply foundational sciences and a wide range of engineering principles in order to lead cross-functional teams developing, designing, and verifying the function of medical technologies and services.
- Graduates of the BSBME program conduct translational biomedical engineering research while adhering to government compliance requirements and regulatory protocols.
- Graduates of the BSBME program exhibit and demand the highest ethical and safety standards in their research and profession.
- Graduates of the BSBME program are contributing members of the profession and society, and stay informed of current research and professional developments through advanced graduate studies and life-long education.
Enjoy your fall semester and your journey in discovering Lawrence Technological University!
What are you up to now? I am working as a Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) Engineer at Terumo Cardiovascular Systems in Ann Arbor. I help to identify and fix systemic or high risk issues identified on our Class III medical devices or on our quality system. What is a typical day like for you? I get to interface with many facets of the company such as analyzing information from complaints or investigating problems. I really enjoy that I work with so many different departments like meeting with Design Engineers, discussing data with Software Engineers, and presenting summaries to the heads of departments. There’s a lot of running around but seeing a problem get fixed, or stopping a potential hazard feels great.
How did your time at Lawrence Tech prepare you for your career? Lawrence Tech helped teach me how to communicate with people. Technical communication can often be a challenge and LTU really prepared me for discussing complex concepts. I use the statistics skills I developed at LTU almost every day since my job often requires working with large groups of data. Lawrence Tech helped me learn the core biomedical, electrical and chemical concepts to understand obstacles and to implement a solution to overcome them. What organizations and activities were you involved in at Lawrence Tech? I was a member of LTU Boot Camp which helped me stay in shape throughout my college career and helped me make a bunch of great friends. I remember having a blast going to the great concerts, activities, and movies as well.What is your best memory of Lawrence Tech? I once got lost trying to take a shortcut through the Architecture building and stumbled upon a James Bond movie showing. I stayed to watch and after the movie I met a couple of friends who I still argue with about who the best James Bond is.
What is one piece of advice you would give to the current BME students at LTU? Find a summer internship even if you have to get one in automotive, mechanical, or electrical. Many people transition form their internship into a full time job after college. Lawrence Tech will give you the tools for success, you have to put your self out there so that you can make the connections that will get you a great job.
IT’S TIME FOR A ROAD TRIP PEOPLE!!
