The Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin is dedicated to preparing students for their professional lives after graduation. In addition to courses in engineering, mathematics, and the life sciences, students are required to complete several design challenges in their freshman year and a year-long, project-based capstone design course in their senior year. In these courses, students develop their teamwork skills, learn about the product development process used in industry, and are made aware of the unique requirements and constraints of medical device design. They consider legal and regulatory issues, use standards where applicable, conduct economic analyses, and learn about packaging, sterilization, and testing of medical devices. This capstone design experience provides students with the knowledge base and skill sets needed to be effective contributing members of a medical device company, clinical engineering department, or academic research laboratory.
