Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Arduino-based Medical Device Prototype

Using an Arduino or other microcontroller, design a basic device that helps meet a medical need you are interested in. This project would be better for someone with some prior coding experience, but Arduino coding should not be too difficult to learn over a few months. This project will involve material costs, which will vary based on the complexity of the project we develop. You would need to acquire a microcontroller and likely sensors, robotic parts, and a soldering kit.

Review Article

If you have a topic in mind related to bioengineering or chemical engineering, we can work together on a literature review. Deliverables can be a publication, presentation, or podcast episode.
