All Fischell Department of Bioengineering undergraduate students take part in a two-semester Capstone design course, taken in year four. This course features guest speakers and gives students the opportunity to engage in discussion on current issues in bioengineering such as ethics, clinical trials, regulatory processes, venture capitalism, business principles, and entrepreneurship. In Capstone, teams of students, under the guidance of faculty and mentors, utilize what they have learned throughout their undergraduate studies to create their own engineering designs from concept to product.
