Lawrence Tech wins $50,000 DENSO grant for Haptics

Comments Off on Lawrence Tech wins $50,000 DENSO grant for Haptics

Lawrence Technological University has been awarded $50,000 to fund Advanced Haptics for Automation and Control Systems. Dr. Mansoor Nasir, the PI of the grant, along with colleagues in Biomedical Engineering (Dr. Eric Meyer), Robotics (James Kern), Psychology (Dr. Franco Delogu) and Electrical Engineering (Dr. Nabih Jaber) will use this grant to built the capacity for Haptics research and education at LTU. The grant will be used to buy tools and instrumentation to expose LTU students to the area of Haptics which deals with the sense of touch. Haptics applications include the design, development and evaluation of human-computer interfaces in automotive, telesurgery and virtual reality.

Qualified Self and the Entrepreneurial Mindset Webinar (May 16th, 2016)

Comments Off on Qualified Self and the Entrepreneurial Mindset Webinar (May 16th, 2016)

Keen-Tag-OnDarkKEEN Webinar Hosted by Dr. Eric Meyer and Dr. Mansoor Nasir

Monday, May 16, 2016
1:00 – 1:30 p.m.  EDT
www.engineeringunleased.com

Have you been looking for more ways to expand the learning of your students? Or maybe you are looking for a way to bridge together what students are learning and the real world entrepreneurial side that struggles to find its way into the classroom. Well for the answers to this questions and many others be sure to join us on this webinar focused on the entrepreneurial mindset.

Dr. Eric Meyer and Dr. Mansoor Nasir’s teaching approach is to give all students in biomedical engineering multiple opportunities to practice entrepreneurially minded learning (EML). Discover how they developed EML modules centered on the theme of Quantified-Self (QS) devices. The presenters will describe how this project has impacted their early faculty career development, led to course revisions, and is currently being utilized by faculty around the country.

All participants will be given access to the EML activities utilizing QS devices to implement in their own classrooms.

Quantified-Self (QS) Roadshow – Bucknell Edition

Comments 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.

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

BME-IDEA Conference

Comments 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.

LTU had six BME students attend a conference/competition in Coral Gables Florida. Lawrence Tech was joined by 19 other schools. Coulter College is a training program focused on translation of biomedical innovations. Student design teams are guided by faculty and clinical experts through a highly dynamic process designed to help them better understand how innovations can meet clinical needs, while providing tools and approaches used to evolve identified problems into novel solutions. The program is supported by the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.

This was the 2nd year in a row that Lawrence Tech applied and was accepted as one of the schools to attend.
