Nanotechnology Summer Camp

Comments 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

Comments 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

Comments 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.

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.

ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition in Seattle, WA

Comments Off on ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition in Seattle, WA

The ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition is the only conference dedicated to all disciplines of engineering education. The conference’s main focus is to promote the exchange of ideas among the different teaching staff on the different teaching methods and curriculum they find best. It is a chance for all to share new ideas and gain knowledge from others. The BME department here at LTU attended the conference.

We had two presentations and a poster:

BME Senior Project Poster Presentation

Comments Off on BME Senior Project Poster Presentation

BME Seniors presented posters to BME, Arts and Science Faculty as well as members of the industrial advisory board on 04/16/2015. Some projects also demonstrated their design prototypes. The Wireless Auscultation group was rated as the best poster. The students (Stephen Krammin, Danielle Manley and Matt Koper) received $25 gift card. Many students from BME and Life Sciences also attended the event and interacted with the seniors.

As a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s prestigious IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) award, Tufts University has accepted the challenge of establishing new models for graduate education and training. Our goal is to create a collaborative environment in which our research transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries, with a focus on soft material robotics.

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

Comments Off on Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

The CSNE at the University of Washington sponsors a 10-week Research Experience for Undergraduates on the Seattle campus during the summer.  This program provides undergraduate students with opportunities to work on research projects with scientists and to take part in workshop training sessions in ethics, communications, and scientific presentation skills designed to provide the undergraduate scientist with a solid foundation for graduate study.

Undergraduates will help with research in one of 17 labs at the UWOur summer 2015 session takes place June 16 – August 21, 2015.

COMPLETED APPLICATIONS ARE DUE FEBRUARY 1, 2015
