This hands-on module will guide the students through the process of biomedical device prototyping and manufacturing via various examples of fluidic chips, implantables, and functional tissue replicas which they will design and fabricate in the lab. Students will become familiar and practice the basics of (1) various polymerization modalities; (2) design for manufacturability principles; (3) advanced fabrication techniques, and (4) metrology and characterization methods to analyze the printed devices and implants. By the end of the module, they will be able to apply their understanding of manufacturing process capabilities and constraints to the design and manufacture of a new biomedical device which they will be challenged to develop and prototype for the final project assessment. The lab in conjunction with the complimentary modules will equip the students with the experience and skillsets required to operate in a medical device industry as a product engineer or product R&D researcher.
