Developing and Running an Industry-Integrated Human Factors Engineering Course

Although engineering students graduate from their program well-equipped with the theoretical concepts taught in class, they often lack practical knowledge regarding their particular industry [1]. Such gaps between technical teachings and industry requirements could potentially be filled by integrating an industry perspective into programs and course delivery. Further benefit can be derived when such industry-integrated […]

Algorithm Aided Design – Personal Data Driven Medical Device Design

Personal data driven design is here. With Algorithm Aided Design (AAD) and the ability to adjust your design with rules, mathematics equations and parameters, a custom design is fast to produce and send to a 3D printer. The medical market presents lots of opportunities in that direction. For example, a start-up has developed 3D printed […]
