Biomedical Engineering Practicum

The Biomedical Engineering Practicum is an opportunity for junior and senior biomedical engineering students to exercise hands-on, open-ended problem solving to contemporary issues through Rowan’s Engineering Clinic program. A required curriculum component, the program is designed to broaden experiences beyond the classroom through fundamental and applied experiences on biomedical engineering related projects. Students commit up to 2 years on projects sourced from research faculty, local entrepreneurs, health care professionals, non-profit organizations, and industry representatives. Under the mentorship of Rowan Engineering faculty, students are then guided in the scientific method, engineering design process, experimental techniques, data analysis and presentation, and scientific writing. Using Rowan’s state-of-the-art engineering facilities, students work together in multi-disciplinary teams with graduate students, faculty, and collaborators to solve pressing problems.

Within the BME Practicum, students represent the College and University as ambassadors during their collaboration with multi-disciplinary professionals both within and outside the University, and students have successfully published in peer-reviewed journals, presented at regional, national, and international conferences, authored/licensed intellectual property developed during their work, and led start-up companies.
