Medical Devices and Manufacturing
This course aims to educate participants in medical design innovation and manufacturing, that highlights engineering design for x framework with an emphasis on tolerances and reliability analyses. Participants will become proficient in redesigning medical devices with formalized design methodologies with consideration of manufacturing and tolerancing needs.
Classes will be a mix of presentations to convey concepts, working through examples, individual exercises, and team-based projects for the participants. All instruction and materials will be in English. The instructors of this course are Dr. Paul Egan and Dr. Richard Gale.
Attendance is mandatory and any student who does not attend at least 90% of the meetings will fail the course. Participation will be assessed based on the participant’s attendance (50%) and in-class work (50%).
The software used in this class are free for personal use.
Dr. Paul Egan has a master's and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and a Bachelors in mechanical engineering and aerospacial engineering from Oklahoma State University
Dr. Richard Gale has a Ph.D in Physics from Lehigh University, a masters degree in physics from Lehigh University, and a bachelors degree in physics from University of California. He is currently an Instructor and Associate President for Graduate Studies at Texas Tech University, where he creates and teaches electrical and computer engineering courses, ranging from freshmen to Ph.D students.
