Design Process Prezi:

We integrated Prezi into our design process, by writing on pages in a manner similar to a design journal. The process was thus easier, as it provided us with a chronological approach and reference with which to check our progress, and design concept plausibility.


Biomedical Engineering

The application of engineering design concepts and principles in support of medicinal, biological and intricately implemented health practices. Biomedical engineering developments include artificial organs, automated patient monitoring, medical imaging systems, blood chemistry sensors, etc. Knowledge and skills are developed and applied to define and solve problems in biology and medicine.


Electrical Engineering

The application of engineering design concepts and principles in order to support the creation and implementation of electronic works. Some of these works include electric motors, machinery controls, lighting and wiring in buildings, automobiles, aircraft and radar, etc. This field plays an essential role in the sectors of telecommunications, computers, education and research, and transportation.


Computer Science

The application of algorithms and logical design processes through coding in order to support other fields of engineering by providing the text-based underlining. A very common example of computer science in daily life is a cellphone (smartphone) where this field supports the work of electrical engineering by expressing them on a screen.
