LTU BME Alums Make Waves!

Comments Off on LTU BME Alums Make Waves!

For their senior project, Aimee Tomlinson and Meagan Mazurek (LTU, BME Class of 2017), under the advisement of Dr. Mansoor Nasir, worked on a CPR monitoring device. They won the award for the best project last year. The super alums have been continuing on the entrepreneurship pathway with their project and their initiative led to them being accepted to the Wayne State Patent Procurement Clinic in August 2017. The clinic offers free patent services to a limited number of Michigan-based inventors. Inventors are assigned a patent law student that will perform a patentability search, draft the patent application, and communicate with the US Patent Office. In December 2017, Aimee and Meagan filed a patent application for their CPR feedback device. With the patent pending and some intellectual property protection in place, Aimee applied and was accepted to the Design of Medical Devices Conference’s Valuation Competition. Aimee will be giving an 8-minute oral presentation on the invention, with the chance to be awarded a full valuation of the marketability and manufacturing possibilities for the device, a service valued at $15,000!

Aimee is currently a research assistant for the Motor Learning and Rehabilitation Engineering Lab at Michigan State University. Her next goal is to develop wearable technologies for stroke rehabilitation. Meagan is currently working at Bosch Automotive services solution, in Novi, MI

Introducing the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering program at Lawrence Tech

Comments Off on Introducing the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering program at Lawrence Tech


These are exciting times for biomedical engineers. As the so-called “baby-boomers” reach 70 years of age next year, we are faced with an older population demographic as well as numerous challenges not yet fully addressed in our field.

The MSBME program (Flyer) is designed to enhance the knowledge of advanced and emerging topics in the field. Lawrence Tech’s signature combination of theory and practice provides you with enhanced knowledge of specialized tools and technologies, the ability to formulate and solve advanced engineering problems, design systems or processes, and evaluate complex systems and newly created knowledge. Our faculty have expertise in biomechanics, tissue engineering, bioMEMS, bioinstrumentation, and medical imaging. They are your partners as you work on applied research and design projects.

Students will take one advanced mathematics and one advanced biology/physiology course, three biomedical engineering courses and one to three additional elective courses to complete the degree (MSBME Flowchart). Your selection of courses from wide spectrum of topics provides the ability to tailor your degree to fit your interests. Finally, you will also have the option to complete either a Master’s Design Project or a Master’s Research Thesis for the capstone experience. Early in the program, you can select a BME faculty member to serve as your adviser and to work with to determine the scope of your Project or Thesis work.

The eligibility for the program is not limited to graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering; interested students from other engineering and science backgrounds are also eligible to enroll in this program. Up to two of the courses may be completed during a dual-enrollment option or transferred from another graduate program (5year dual enrollment).

It is a challenging curriculum. I am confident that each of our students will be up to the task, and I very enthusiastically welcome you. You can find various current activities as well as our faculty interests on our website.

Alumni Spotlight: Kevin Kerr ( BSBME’10) – Fall 2013 Newsletter

Comments Off on Alumni Spotlight: Kevin Kerr ( BSBME’10) – Fall 2013 Newsletter

The following article is from the Fall 2013 BME Newsletter:


Kevin Kerr, Corrective and Preventive Actions Engineer (CAPA) at Terumo Cardiovascular Systems in Ann Arbor

What are you up to now? I am working as a Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) Engineer at Terumo Cardiovascular Systems in Ann Arbor.  I help to identify and fix systemic or high risk issues identified on our Class III medical devices or on our quality system.
What is a typical day like for you?  I get to interface with many facets of the company such as analyzing information from complaints or investigating problems.  I really enjoy that I work with so many different departments like meeting with Design Engineers, discussing data with Software Engineers, and presenting summaries to the heads of departments.  There’s a lot of  running around but seeing a problem get fixed, or stopping a potential hazard feels great.
How did your time at Lawrence Tech prepare you for your career?  Lawrence Tech helped teach me how to communicate with people.  Technical communication can often be a challenge and LTU really prepared me for discussing complex concepts.  I use the statistics skills I developed at LTU almost every day since my job often requires working with large groups of data.  Lawrence Tech helped me learn the core biomedical, electrical, and chemical concepts to understand obstacles and to implement a solution to overcome them.
What organizations and activities were you involved in at Lawrence Tech?  I was a member of LTU Boot Camp which helped me stay in shape throughout my college career and helped me make a bunch of great friends.  I remember having a blast going to the great concerts, activities, and movies as well.
What is your best memory of Lawrence Tech? I once got lost trying to take a shortcut through the Architecture building and stumbled upon a James Bond movie showing.  I stayed to watch and after the movie I met a couple of friends who I still argue with about who the best James Bond is.
What is one piece of advice you would give to the current BME student at LTU?  Find a summer internship even if you have to get one in automotive, mechanical, or electrical.  Many people transition from their internship into a full time job after college.  Lawrence Tech will give you the tools for success, you have to put yourself out there so that you can make the connections that will get you a great job.

The biomedical engineering and life science faculty have been busy this past summer implementing new activities and opportunities for our freshman through senior students.  Returning students have noticed that room E108 – Bioinstrumentation Lab now has a new look.  The biomechanics gait analysis laboratory has secured funding from the DENSO Foundation to support research in human and machine interaction (see story on page xx).  We are very excited about this collaboration with the electrical engineering and robotic engineering programs.  Freshman students are enjoying working in the new collaboration space in room E109.   When you are on your way to the Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope or the BioMEMS laboratories, stop by to check out the new learning environment.

The Life Science Advisory Board welcomes two new members.  Mrs. Janelle Schrot from Materilize (MIMICS suite) and Dr. Ren You from Terumo Heart Inc. We look forward to working with these members and organizations as we continue to improve and expand the biomedical engineering program.

Finally, the biomedical engineering program thanks all the students and alumni who accepted the invitation to participate in the focus group meetings in the spring semester.  The focus groups provided valuable input on the needs and expectations of program graduates.  The biomedical engineering program educational objectives articulate the expected capabilities of graduates 3 to 5 years after graduation and they are:

  1. Graduates of the BSBME program apply foundational sciences and a wide range of engineering principles in order to lead cross-functional teams developing, designing, and verifying the function of medical technologies and services.   
  2.  Graduates of the BSBME program conduct translational biomedical engineering research while adhering to government compliance requirements and regulatory protocols.
  3.  Graduates of the BSBME program exhibit and demand the highest ethical and safety standards in their research and profession.
  4.  Graduates of the BSBME program are contributing members of the profession and society, and stay informed of current research and professional developments through advanced graduate studies and life-long education.

Enjoy your fall semester and your journey in discovering Lawrence Technological University!
