Contract CAD Work Opportunity

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on Contract CAD Work Opportunity

Beaumont orthopedic research lab is looking for a student interested in doing some contract CAD work with a Beaumont surgeon. The surgeon is designing some novel implantation using Nitinol and would like it professionally drafted with some CAD software like Solidworks.  The project is for a patent and subsequent commercialization, so this is a pretty unique opportunity that will expose the student to some immediate product development. The surgeon will pay the student either by the project or by the hour, on a freelance basis.

Interested students can contact Dr. Nasir or Dr. Li.

Alpha Eta Mu Beta – MINDS Program

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on Alpha Eta Mu Beta – MINDS Program

The AEMB Mentoring for INnovative Design Solutions (MINDS) Scholar Program is an innovative approach that provides students with the opportunity to collaborate and network with peers and mentors across the country, while building necessary engineering design skills, including 3 key considerations that are not usually stressed in coursework projects. The 3 key considerations are:

  1. market considerations for commercialization (unmet need, size of market, reimbursement potential, etc.),
  2. regulatory strategy
  3. evaluating prospects for intellectual property protection.

MINDS Scholars enhance their knowledge of product design, and learn how to effectively communicate with teammates and mentors who are from other schools and organizations using collaborative online tools, which are becoming an increasingly important skill in today’s work environment. Participation in  the MINDS Scholar Program is through a competitive application process that takes place annually July- September (click here for application). Students need not be AEMB members to participate. Ideally, you should apply when you are a sophomore or a junior so that you get the most out of the program. AEMB provides travel stipends to all MINDS scholars to attend the initial workshop (up to $600).  Find more information click here.

Patent Examiner Job (Biomedical Engineering) – USPTO

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on Patent Examiner Job (Biomedical Engineering) – USPTO

A patent examiner (PE) reviews applications to determine whether patents can be granted for inventions. Patents give inventors the right to exclude others from making or selling their inventions for a limited time. As a U.S. patent examiner, you will handle these basic patent examining functions:

  • Search prior art to ensure that an invention is new and unique. Prior art is information that has been disclosed to the public about an invention before a given date – including any related patents, published articles and public demonstrations.
  • Review patent applications to ensure conformity to formal requirements.
  • Write legal office actions on patentability and respond to patent applicants.

GS-7: Perform basic patent examining functions with extensive instructions from the supervisor. Training will develop the ability to apply technical concepts to the patent examining process. Assignments combine performance of productive work with supervised on-the-job training.

Open & closing dates: 09/11/2017 to 10/23/2017

Location: Alexandria, VA
