BIOMED 2021 Senior Design Showcase

BIOMED Senior Design Showcase

 The capstone Senior Design Showcase is our way of providing a forum in which the project engineers (i.e., the students) can communicate their results to the community.

What stands out is how each team member takes the project in his/her own hands. Each biomedical engineering student researches different aspects of the project to shape the design. Our design-centered curriculum cherishes and promotes this active involvement and creativity of the students.

Sonali Dadoo

Meet a Biomed Dragon


Sonali, a BS undergraduate student majoring in Biomedical Engineering, recently completed her third co-op with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Hear first hand how her hands-on co-op experience at CHOP led her to design, build, and successfully test a biomedical device for her senior capstone project.
