Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Experiential Learning Opportunities

An important component of BME undergraduate education is experiential learning. All BS graduates complete two semesters of Biomedical Engineering Laboratory (EBME 313 and EBME 314) during their junior year. BS graduates also complete a two-semester BME Design Project (EBME 370 and EBME 380), typically during their senior year as their "Senior Capstone" experience. However, Case BME also offers a Student Employment Program where students can participate in co-op, internship, or part-time opportunities in actual research and/or industrial settings. During the summer over half of our students (freshman-senior) are participating in some type of hands-on learning experience. Over 85% of our graduates have had some type of experiential learning opportunity. In fact, many have multiple experiences by the time they graduate.

Undergraduate Research

Our undergraduates participate in research laboratories of the BME faculty during the academic semesters and during the summer. Additionally, the interdisciplinary nature of biomedical engineering and the proximity of the BME department to many other departments in the School of Engineering and the School of Medicine, as well as University Hospitals of Cleveland, the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, MetroHealth Medical Center, and the VA Medical Center has created an abundance of opportunities for undergraduate research in those facilities as well.

CREATE, Undergraduate Summer Design Experience

Case's Rising Engineers & Technological Entrepreneurs (CREATE) strives to involve undergraduate engineering and science students in the design process used to solve real-world problems faced by local companies and hospitals.  CREATE provides the resources necessary to have student teams design, build, and test engineering solutions to these problems. The program emphasizes interdisciplinary, experiential learning and focuses on the high standards of educating students to be ethical leaders in all fields of engineering.

Starting in early June and running for 10 weeks, CREATE is a unique program that will be a one of a kind experience.
