Project-based course on the design of mechatronic devices to address needs identified by hospital-based clinicians and industry. Students work in teams to develop a mechatronic prototype. The lectures will cover the design of medical devices and robotics including sensors, actuators, and robots. The students will communicate with customers to understand design needs, then conduct study on prior art, intellectual property, due diligence, and idea conceptualization. Students will present ideas in class and to a broad audience from local industry. Students will also write a publication-quality final report, which they will be encouraged for publication submission.

This video offers insight into the activities during the implementation of the Erasmus+ KA202 project "Future Trends in Clothing: Trendy, Smart and Healthy" (2018-2020).In this project three vocational schools from Austria, Spain, Germany cooperated with a general high school from Greece. The video is a documentation of the project's reached milestones, the great personal and work experiences we all gained during our international cooperation.It also shows how the work of everyone involved was still successfully concluded under the conditions of the Corona virus pandemic. Even if we where not able to manufacture & market our finalized product idea as planned, the skills we developed, shared and improved along the way are not less valuable.Now, enjoy the video and of course bear in mind ...“The European Commission support for the production of this publication does not constitute an endorsement of the contents which reflects the views only of the authors, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.”
Since the CoVID19 pandemic, essential workers have been impacted beyond that of others in the labor force. Statistics on nonmedical essential workers and how CoVid19 affects their health and livelihood are lacking. No centralized reporting exists and corporations do not either collect or provide this data. This OER attempts to bring together various sources information from March-July 2020 for future research. This material is a compilation of original sources of varying restrictions to be used for educational purposes, so I have chosen the CC BY NC ND license.
Fundamentals of Laboratory Management is designed to serve as an introductory guide to laboratory, quality and regulatory system in laboratories for biotechnicians.
