Description

Companies working in the Medical Device industry always invest in developing new products and improving existing solutions. In this Build Project, you'll wear the hat of Research and Development Engineer, and prepare a comparison of competitor devices for a new branch of products that have been developed by a medical device company. Under the supervision of an experienced Build Fellow, you'll present all information collected in a visually concise and informative way to help give insights on next steps for the product family. You'll improve your research skills and become familiar with public scientific and medical archives like NIH. All this will happen in an environment that simulates the operations of a real research and development team.
