Abstract

Involvement of biomedical engineering students in the design and development of products with commercial potential, is discussed. The goal was to introduce the participants in many facets of entrepreneurship ranging from a search for projects with commercial potential, project selection, product specification, technical plan, market research, business planning and prototype development followed by testing. Each student participated for at least two semesters, but some projects continued beyond that point. The majority of the participants were seniors; the team project was equivalent to otherwise mandatory senior design project or capstone project required for accrediation.
