This hands-on module will guide the students through the process of biomedical device prototyping and manufacturing via various examples of fluidic chips, implantable devices, and functional tissue replicas which they will design and fabricate in the lab. 

Students will become familiar and practice:
(1) design for manufacturability principles; 
(2) various polymerization modalities; 
(3) advanced fabrication techniques, and 
(4) metrology and characterization methods to analyze the printed devices and implants

By the end of the module, they will be able to apply their understanding of manufacturing process capabilities and constraints to the design and manufacture of a new biomedical device which they will be challenged to develop and prototype for the final project assessment.
