Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This graduate level course focuses on the later stages of the innovation process; prototyping, market analysis, strategic planning, intellectual property protection, and business planning. Students, under the mentorship of participating CMI faculty (SSOE, SHS, business, law), will apply the principles and techniques from BIOENG 2151 (medical product development) and prioritize clinical needs identified in BIOENG 2170 (clinical bioengineering) and, using the resources of the swanson innovation center, create a prototype for pre-clinical and clinical evaluation. Students will use basic principles of intellectual property (IP) for engineers and publicly available search tools to determine patentability, freedom to operate, and patent strength. Students will then produce a medical device/product prototype and complete documentation set suitable for technology transfer.
