||In this hands-on course, you will learn how to successfully identify unmet clinical needs within the clinical routine and work towards possible and realistic solutions to solve those needs. Students will get to know tools helping them to be successful innovators in medical technology. This will include all steps from needs finding and selection to defining appropriate solution concepts, including the development of first prototypes.
During the course, necessary steps for successful idea and concept creation will be introduced to students and realized in interdisciplinary project teams comprised of students from various faculties, including engineering disciplines, business and design. During the project phase, each team will be supported by coaches from both engineering and medicine, in order to allow for direct and continuous exchange.
Thus, the following key points will be addressed during the course:
- Needs finding
- From brainstorming to concept
- Concept generation
- Evolving your concept
- Working in interdisciplinary teams
