The MIT 2.75 Precision Machine Design course collaborates with CIMIT to bring together physicians from Boston-area hospitals and MIT engineering students in developing new medical devices. Physicians present their particular challenges then student teams work with them during the course of a semester to develop prototype solutions. The course has run since 2004, each year with a new cast of physicians and device challenges.
