Medical Devices and Manufacturing




June 2021


 About this course 


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.

This course is designed for professionals that want to learn theory and skills relevant to design and manufacturing of medical devices. They can identify with profiles 2 and 3 (university and technical) of the 2-3-1-20-5 convocation.
Participants need a preliminary understanding of medical devices, design, and manufacturing. They must also understand and speak English, and have at least a B1 grade on the free exam https://www.examenglish.com/leveltest/index.php
Classes will be taught online through Zoom for Education or MS Teams. This course consists of 5 meeting days with 6 hours of instruction each day, (30 hours in total). Classes will be held from June 28th to July 2nd, from 10 AM to 1 PM and from 2 PM to 5 PM.
