Alpha Eta Mu Beta – MINDS Program

Comments Off on Alpha Eta Mu Beta – MINDS Program

The AEMB Mentoring for INnovative Design Solutions (MINDS) Scholar Program is an innovative approach that provides students with the opportunity to collaborate and network with peers and mentors across the country, while building necessary engineering design skills, including 3 key considerations that are not usually stressed in coursework projects. The 3 key considerations are:

  1. market considerations for commercialization (unmet need, size of market, reimbursement potential, etc.),
  2. regulatory strategy
  3. evaluating prospects for intellectual property protection.

MINDS Scholars enhance their knowledge of product design, and learn how to effectively communicate with teammates and mentors who are from other schools and organizations using collaborative online tools, which are becoming an increasingly important skill in today’s work environment. Participation in  the MINDS Scholar Program is through a competitive application process that takes place annually July- September (click here for application). Students need not be AEMB members to participate. Ideally, you should apply when you are a sophomore or a junior so that you get the most out of the program. AEMB provides travel stipends to all MINDS scholars to attend the initial workshop (up to $600).  Find more information click here.


LTU Faculty conduct Hands-on Workshop at ASEE Annual Conference

Comments Off on LTU Faculty conduct Hands-on Workshop at ASEE Annual Conference

Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer along with Dr. Michael Rust from Western New England University conducted a hands-on workshop at the 2017 American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference in Columbus, OH. The workshop in the BME division was titled “Hands-on activities for Prototyping and Ideation in Biomedical Engineering”. 

The faculty had prepared electronic kits containing open hardware and various sensors for the participants and shared how the kits can be incorporated in learning modules in classroom. The use of these types of kits promotes student-instructor interaction and builds confidence in students to create functional prototypes.

The workshop was attended by 11 participants and there was a healthy conversation during and after the workshop. The development of kits and learning modules is being supported by The Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN) topical grant that Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer received last year.


Biomedical Engineering Workshop Hosted at LTU

Comments Off on Biomedical Engineering Workshop Hosted at LTU

Faculty from 12 Colleges attended a BME workshop at LTU. The main goal of this workshop was to encourage the entrepreneurship mindset of students and for entrepreneurship should be integrated into the curriculum. Few engineers have come up with a concept and followed through to get the idea funded. The goal is to help students in real life situations by giving them opportunities in the classroom to explore the field from the mindset of an entrepreneur.
