LTU BME Alums Make Waves!

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on LTU BME Alums Make Waves!

For their senior project, Aimee Tomlinson and Meagan Mazurek (LTU, BME Class of 2017), under the advisement of Dr. Mansoor Nasir, worked on a CPR monitoring device. They won the award for the best project last year. The super alums have been continuing on the entrepreneurship pathway with their project and their initiative led to them being accepted to the Wayne State Patent Procurement Clinic in August 2017. The clinic offers free patent services to a limited number of Michigan-based inventors. Inventors are assigned a patent law student that will perform a patentability search, draft the patent application, and communicate with the US Patent Office. In December 2017, Aimee and Meagan filed a patent application for their CPR feedback device. With the patent pending and some intellectual property protection in place, Aimee applied and was accepted to the Design of Medical Devices Conference’s Valuation Competition. Aimee will be giving an 8-minute oral presentation on the invention, with the chance to be awarded a full valuation of the marketability and manufacturing possibilities for the device, a service valued at $15,000!

Aimee is currently a research assistant for the Motor Learning and Rehabilitation Engineering Lab at Michigan State University. Her next goal is to develop wearable technologies for stroke rehabilitation. Meagan is currently working at Bosch Automotive services solution, in Novi, MI

Solid State Devices – Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

By John PeponisComments Off on Solid State Devices – Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

The Holcombe Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Clemson University is seeking applicants for a summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. This NSF funded program is entitled: “REU Site: Solid-State Devices for Electronics, Photonics, and Magnetics Technology”. The REU supports up to 10 summer students, with one to four semesters remaining in their undergraduate programs, to become involved with a faculty member and graduate students for a 10 week research experience at Clemson. The program is open to undergraduate students in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science, Bioengineering, and Physics. Closely related disciplines may also be considered. The program provides summer housing on campus for the students and pays a generous stipend.

A flyer describing the program can be found here, with a link to the REU Program Website. Interested students can apply from this site.

2018 Program Start date: May 21, 2018 End date: July 27, 2018
Priority application deadline: March 2, 2018

Micro and nanofabrication of solid-state devices are rapidly becoming the key drivers of interdisciplinary research in emerging fields such as nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomechanics, nanophysics, and biophysics. Such technology is a critical component of modern economic development, and leadership in research is a key to sustained US economic competitiveness. One of the greatest challenges in maintaining that leadership is the limited number of undergraduates from US engineering programs who pursue graduate studies in solid-state devices and the related topics of materials and device processing. The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (“the SURE program”) in Solid-State Devices for Electronics, Photonics, and Magnetics Technology was created to address this need.

IEEE SEM Conference 2017

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on IEEE SEM Conference 2017

Dr. Nasir was a panel speaker at IEEE Southeast Michigan (SEM) chapters 2017 Annual conference. The topic was Ethics in Engineering, Science and Technology, in recognition of the difficulty in a modern world of fulfilling multiple and sometimes conflicting moral obligations to different parties. The keynote speaker was John C. Havens, Executive Director of the IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems, who made a passionate appeal for Ethical considerations to be at the front end of Engineering Design.

Dr. Nasir talked about the need for students to be exposed to the ethical issues and engineering best practices. Biomedical engineers at LTU are required to take BME Best Practices (BME 3002) which covers many of the relevant topics. The topic of privacy and security of personal health data is also of relevance to Wearable Technology, which is being covered by BME 4903-02, Wearable Technology Studio, this semester.
