ME 423: D.HEALTH: Design Thinking for Better Health

In the U.S., 75% of medical expenditures are for illnesses that are predominantly lifestyle related such as type 2 diabetes, arthritis and heart disease. It has been shown as people modify their lifestyles with healthier habits, medical problems can be reduced or avoided and a healthier and happier life achieved. The class employs design thinking in teams while working directly with volunteers in the community to help them achieve their health goals. There is an individual project and a team project each with multiple milestones. Admission by application. See dschool.stanford.edu/classes for more information.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)


This course, taught by Dr. Gary O'Brien of the Bosch RTC, will provide insight into the issues and challenges in designing MEMS device for commercial and automotive applications. Topics to be covered in the class will include device simulation and design, design of experiments, compensation for cross-wafer and wafer-to-wafer fabrication variations, design for extreme environments, analysis and management of reliability issues including package stress, shock, drift, cost analysis of manufacturing processes, and some discussion of the unique challenges for consumer and automotive customers and markets. Student teams will develop a device design, fabrication process, and manufacturing analysis in response to a specification.
