A collaboration of the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the School of Medicine and Dentistry, CMTI will also make use of the University’s Center for Entrepreneurship as it coordinates activities to develop technological solutions to clinical problems.
“The medical device industry employs numerous engineers who lack critical clinical experience,” said Robert Clark, dean of the Hajim School. “This new center will help close that gap.”
The center will offer a master’s degree program in medical technology innovation. Students in the program will spend a minimum of two months in a clinical environment, enabling them to serve as a bridge between the medical and engineering faculty.
