5 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins Opportunities For Early Student Design Topic Investment: The Early SET-UP Design Strategy (Student Engagement of Topics for Undergraduate Projects)

6 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins BioE 401 Senior Biomedical Design One Semester, 3 Credit Capstone Design Course Spring 2007, 6 students (next-to-last class of BioE minors) 4 Biosystems Engineering, 1 Mechanical, 1 Electrical Course Content Principles of Engineering Design Process Project Proposal Development Engage in Biomedical Design ABET Criteria (a-k) c) Ability to design to meet a needs d) Function on multi-disiplinary teams h) understand eng. impact on society/world j) Knowledge of contemporary issues

7 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy The Design Topic Selection Problem: Professors Objectives Discipline relevant, Potentially successful, Related to funding, Research or career building, Multi-Year Design intensive, Team Oriented, Challenging Students Objectives Straight-forward, Dual-serving, Minimally team dependent, last-week-of-class attainable, A+ deserving The Solution: “SET-UP”

8 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy Week 1-2: (The Introduction) Course lectures: Introduction to design, Brainstorming, Team building, Process flowcharting, Idea evaluation, QFD Introduction to Design Project Ideas: (National, Regional), Brainstorming, Student/Professor Interaction, Site Visits, Guest Lectures, Investigative Assignments into Biomedical Design Issues End of Week 2: (The Interest) Student self-selection and engagement of topic Each student selects their favorite design topic and distributes a 1 page description of design topic to student peers for review Students assigned to rank them for potential merit

9 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy Start of Week 3: (The Investment) Student Peer-Review and Presentation Students rank abstracts, best abstracts get presented 10 minute conference-style presentation Students sell their topic, and themselves charisma oral-written skills leadership abilities

10 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy Final Design Topic Selection (The Engagement) Students vote for best design/presenter (not their own) Topic Presenters rewarded as Team Leader Team Leaders select team-mates by Draft, Lottery and/or Polling

11 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy Advantages Design Topic Diversity Explored Significant exploration/development of design topics Professor/Student interaction/discussion early Critical examination of field from design perspective Student Engagement Assured Students identify and share “invested” topic with peers Students review and critique topics of peers Students present and/or review formal presentations Students vote for best topics, and their own team leader

12 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy Advantages (continued) Professor Wins Student interaction/discussion early in semester Early identification of team attributes (thinkers, leaders, troublemakers, etc.) New (student) design ideas discovered No “assignment” of topics needed Best Design Topics Selected

13 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy Disadvantages Professors design topic interests not assured Persuasion and guidance critical 1-2 Class Periods devoted to initial student presentations Charismatic Presenter ≠ Best Topic? Latent student investment in original topic

14 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy Students = 6 Teams = 2 Student Topic Abstracts Burn Care Band-Aid Ultra-Sonic Tooth Brush Driver-Friendly Walker Easy-On/Off Compression Stocking Mouth-Wand for Quadriplegics Driving Stress Sensor System Team Car-Diac A Stress Testing Device for a Driving Simulator Team Burned-Aid A Novel Burn Treatment Spring 2007 Experience

15 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y BIOENGINEERING Dr. John DesJardins The Early SET-UP Design Strategy (Student Engagement of Topics for Undergraduate Projects) Discussion/Conclusions Early Engagement of Student in Design Topic Early Professor/Student and Student/Student Interaction Positive, Non-Assigned, High Quality Designs Selected
