Pioneering Interdisciplinary Innovation through Biodesign

Our Department bridges biomedical engineering research and clinical application with the principles of Biodesign. By connecting clinicians and medical personnel on the frontlines with engineers, we develop practical problem solving skills in our students by letting them address unmet clinical needs at the source.

  • We clinical settings to ask about the needs of healthcare practitioners. Whether clinicians, nurses, or other professionals (such as medical examiners, radiologists, nurses), we will use interviews to understand unmet medical needs in each clinical state.
  • In terms of specific practices, we expect that one or two specific needs can be sorted out in each interview with a physician. After obtaining clinical needs, we clearly identify the technical and scientific areas that these needs require.
  • These requirements, after compilation, will be played on the electronic platform we have built. It is hoped that relevant researchers (including school teachers and full-time researchers, as well as outsiders in the field of medical engineering applications) and students (including postgraduate students from our school and other schools and university students) can be recruited to form a team to develop solutions to solve these problems. Specified clinical needs.
  • For current students, we will offer a "Clinical Medical Engineering Project Research" course (3 credits) every semester to encourage students to develop solutions to unmet needs through a mentoring system. Since the students' semester performance and grades will be graded by the medical team that makes the clinical needs, it can be expected that the degree of integration between the students and the clinic will be higher than the current school teacher-student matching method.
  • This approach to medical engineering research and development is also in line with Bio design's initial steps in talent cultivation. Before the start of each semester, we will intensively publicize this cross-disciplinary medical engineering research and learning platform.
  • At the beginning of the semester, we will handle matching and exchange opportunities between students and medical teams to increase the willingness of both parties to cooperate. At the end of the semester, a presentation meeting will be held in a timely manner to present the preliminary results to those who may be interested in follow-up cooperation (including both academic and commercial aspects).
