Biodesign Courses: innovative enough to stretch your imagination.

Biodesign offers innovative, hands-on courses that provide students with first hand experiences in medical device innovation. Our two-quarter innovation course has been favorably reviewed by students and guest speakers alike. Recent innovations in the course include a complete Biodesign Sourcebook which walks students in a practical, stepwise fashion.

Several other courses on campus will assist the student interested in medical device innovation. Check out our Biodesign-related link to see what other classes you can take to get you closer to your educational goals.
