Product development of different health technology products or solutions could be thought as a multi-dimensional project. In this course, a product development project for a biomedical or health technology product is planned from idea to finished product. Instead of lectures, we work as R&D teams. The NABC model, teamwork and pitching will become familiar.

In addition to various plans such as project plan, biological and clinical evaluation plans, and go to market plan, a schedule and budget for the project are made and the cost structure of the product is determined. At the end of the course, the product and project are presented to a jury which evaluates them.
