Seniors in the UAB Department of Biomedical Engineering gathered on April 22 for the first time in person since 2019 to present their senior design projects in the Education-Engineering Complex.

The projects are created as part of BME’s capstone senior design course, instructed by Alan Eberhardt, Ph.D., Professor, Associate Chair of Education. Students are required to present a solution to a clinical problem provided by a client and develop a functional prototype and plan for product commercialization. They must follow guidelines such as adhering to a $400 design budget. Students formally presented video pitches, design posters, and device demonstrations.

The following list of design projects are listed in order of client, team, and project.
