With the growth of our department and constantly evolving demands of industry, BME@TAMU is working to create a new paradigm in undergraduate education. Medical device design is a key element to the field of biomedical engineering, requiring a new teaching model to meet student and industry preparation needs.

As a result, a new initiative to pursue this goal is the planned development of a BME Design Studio located in the Emerging Technologies Building.

This space will allow students to be introduce to biomedical engineering fundamentals and then transition with practical experience through hands-on prototyping and development tools. Current classroom spaces limit: ideation, good teaming practice, exposure to manufacturing techniques, and the ability for students to acquire hands-on learning experience.

The Design Studio will help create an atmosphere that encourages teams to work together and also leverage the resources available throughout the College of Engineering. Expected features of the studio include, but are not limited to:

  • Large screen projectors for presentations
  • Various prototyping tools, materials and supplies
  • 3D printers & scanners

For more information on how you can contribute to the development of this innovative space, please contact Maria Lyons at mlyons@tamu.edu.
