Quantified-Self (QS) Roadshow – Bucknell Edition

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on Quantified-Self (QS) Roadshow – Bucknell Edition

QS Roadshow 11/6/15Dr. Mansoor Nasir and Dr. Eric Meyer traveled to Bucknell University in beautiful Lewisburg, PA for the second QS Roadshow event on Nov. 6th, 2015. The workshop was attended by 9 faculty members from Lawrence Tech, Western New England (WNE)  and Bucknell Universities. The roadshow is part of a KEEN Topical Network Grant (PI: Dr. Mansoor Nasir) that is being leveraged to disseminate classroom resources for EML and student engagement around the QS theme. LTU is taking the lead in building the network of faculty and is sharing resources at a dedicated website qsl4eml.ltu.edu.


Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer introduced the learning modules focusing on Entrepreneurial Mindset  Learning (EML) from various engineering and science fields to the attending faculty.

The Dean of College of Engineering at Bucknell, Dr. Keith Buffinton, talked about entrepreneurship at Bucknell and the many opportunities available to the students to bring their ideas to fruition. Dr. Michael Rust, an Associate Professor from the Biomedical Engineering program at WNE, presented the EML module that he developed for his Sophomore level Fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering course.

The half-day event also included a fabulous presentation by a guest speaker, Michael Levan, who is the founder of a local startup venture, Novipod. He specifically talked about Organ Tracker which is an organ tracking and monitoring application that delivers high precision GPS location, temperature, light, shock, humidity, and pressure sensors to organ procurement organizations, labs, pharmacies, and hospitals. He also shared his experiences about entrepreneurship and in commercializing a new technology.

The presentation was attended by 20 BME seniors from Bucknell. During the afternoon, the faculty toured the various maker lab facilities available to the Bucknell students.


The overall reception of the event was extremely positive and will foster future collaborations between the faculty from these universities.

Introducing the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering program at Lawrence Tech

By Eric MeyerComments Off on Introducing the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering program at Lawrence Tech


These are exciting times for biomedical engineers. As the so-called “baby-boomers” reach 70 years of age next year, we are faced with an older population demographic as well as numerous challenges not yet fully addressed in our field.

The MSBME program (Flyer) is designed to enhance the knowledge of advanced and emerging topics in the field. Lawrence Tech’s signature combination of theory and practice provides you with enhanced knowledge of specialized tools and technologies, the ability to formulate and solve advanced engineering problems, design systems or processes, and evaluate complex systems and newly created knowledge. Our faculty have expertise in biomechanics, tissue engineering, bioMEMS, bioinstrumentation, and medical imaging. They are your partners as you work on applied research and design projects.

Students will take one advanced mathematics and one advanced biology/physiology course, three biomedical engineering courses and one to three additional elective courses to complete the degree (MSBME Flowchart). Your selection of courses from wide spectrum of topics provides the ability to tailor your degree to fit your interests. Finally, you will also have the option to complete either a Master’s Design Project or a Master’s Research Thesis for the capstone experience. Early in the program, you can select a BME faculty member to serve as your adviser and to work with to determine the scope of your Project or Thesis work.

The eligibility for the program is not limited to graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering; interested students from other engineering and science backgrounds are also eligible to enroll in this program. Up to two of the courses may be completed during a dual-enrollment option or transferred from another graduate program (5year dual enrollment).

It is a challenging curriculum. I am confident that each of our students will be up to the task, and I very enthusiastically welcome you. You can find various current activities as well as our faculty interests on our website.

BME-IDEA Conference

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on BME-IDEA Conference

Dr. Nasir presented a snapshot of entrepreneurship-minded learning modules that have been introduced in various courses in the LTU BME program at the BME-IDEA conference on October 7, 2015. The meeting was held at Tampa Marriot Waterside Hotel in conjunction with 2015 Annual BMES conference.

BME-IDEA was started in 2003 when a group of professors who were teaching design in a Biomedical Engineering department or program realized that there were common needs among them that were not being met by current conference offerings. The first BME-IDEA meeting was held in San Francisco in 2003 and the alliance has met annually or bi-annually ever since. Over the past decade BME-IDEA has grown to include over 120 university programs in the U.S. and abroad with a focus on teaching and mentoring of innovation and entrepreneurship in biomedical engineering. These meetings are a chance to share best practices and new ideas with other faculty who lead programs and courses in medical technology design. Many past attendees have indicated that this is their favorite meeting of the year.

Lawrence Tech setup a booth in the exhibit to promote the new Masters of Science in Biomedical Engineering at LTU and the students also helped out with the booth. Overall it was a great experience for everyone with some excellent talks and panel discussions. The weather in Tampa was also not too shabby
