On April 12 an interdisciplinary team of first-year students (engineering and biomedical engineering) tested their engineering design in the operating room of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. This industry-collaborative project was part of the Introduction to Engineering Design, a course taught by six faculty across five departments. 

“It has been a great opportunity to collaborate with the Brigham and Women’s Hospital during our Intro to Engineering Design course," said Timothy Bouchard BSEN ’16. "This course has provided us with a real-world atmosphere and we got a feel of how demanding it is to work in industry.” 

The student team: Timothy Bouchard (engineering ’16), Griffin Kirby (engineering ’16), Brett Powers (biomedical engineering ’16), Giuseppe Petruzziello (engineering ’16), and David Ahn (engineering ’16).
