This book provides an introduction to senior design courses for biomedical engineering students. These courses are often the most important experiences of their undergraduate careers. They provide students with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in previous years and develop their communication (written, oral, and graphical), interpersonal (teamwork, conflict management, and negotiation), project management, and design skills. These skills are needed for any career path, whether it leads to the medical device industry, medicine, law, business, or other area. Working in teams to identify problems and design, develop, and implement solutions to these problems is the best preparation for a career in biomedical engineering. Author Jay Goldberg draws on many years of experience teaching senior design, including numerous conference presentations on the subject, sharing and improving upon best practices in senior design. This includes course administration issues such as lecture topics, assessment tools (exams, peer evaluations, etc.), methods of team formation, types of design projects, course deliverables, faculty involvement, organizational support, and solicitation, funding, and industry sponsorship of projects.
