The University of Illinois at Chicago Department of Bioengineering has modified several courses and has added courses to better prepare the Bioengineer for positions in the medical device, instruments, or supplies industry. The courses that have been modified fall under the categories of required, elective, undergraduate or graduate. Therefore all students have an opportunity to be trained in one or more of the job skill sets. The Bioengineering Curriculum has 6 courses designed to integrate at least one skill set into the course and 2 courses that have five (5) or more skill sets. Examples of skill sets are: Product Requirement Definition, Project Management, Project Scheduling, Status Reporting, Protocol Writing, Design Review, Hazard Analysis, and Risk Assessment. The classroom experience provides the student with training and a real life application of the skill set.
