Science and Technology Showcase

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on Science and Technology Showcase

Please register and attend. I am also hoping to recruit a few students from BME to be present in the labs to talk to the visitors. I have been told that several Medical Technology companies were invited to attend this event so it may have implications for future opportunities.

For those of you engaged in various projects, there is also a possibility to showcase your work. Please talk to me if you are interested.

LTU Biomedical Engineering rated among the Best Value Small College programs

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on LTU Biomedical Engineering rated among the Best Value Small College programs

Several programs at Lawrence Technological University have been rated among the Best Value Small College programs by the college ranking website Best Value Schools for 2017.

Lawrence Tech was ranked No. 9 in the nation for civil engineering, No. 10 for biomedical engineering, and No. 11 for its mathematics program.

For the biomedical and civil engineering rankings, listed schools must offer at least one targeted program for students seeking a bachelor’s degree in the field. For the math award, three relevant programs must be offered. Schools must also demonstrate a commitment to cost control and a 50 percent graduation rate. The website said it used NCIS College Navigator database and program research to make its rankings, based on academic breadth and depth, student support, and affordability.

The website said LTU’s biomedical engineering “curriculum encourages creativity and innovation as much as science and math, making it the perfect academic melting pot for anyone who wants to apply abstract ideas to real world problems … The demanding program requires a minimum of 132 credit hours and includes four main areas of focus: bioelectronics, biofluids, biomaterials, and biomechanics. In addition, each student in this top biomedical engineering undergraduate program receives a laptop and access to industry-standard software that they can use in laboratory and design classes.

The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.

The goals of NREIP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.

NREIP provided competitive research internships to approximately 590 college students last summer. Participating students spend ten weeks during the summer conducting research at approximately 36 DoN laboratories.

NREIP’s Online Application closes on November 30, 2016! Apply Here!
