Dr. Michael Moreno participated as a Faculty Leader, teaching a 3 week course for our study abroad program in Kigali, Rwanda. This is in partnership with Engineering World Health!
Making a World of Difference The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University is partnering with Engineering World Health to offer undergraduate engineering students the opportunity to participate in an intense and challenging study abroad program in the Republic of Rwanda through which they will help develop medical devices and technologies that address critical needs, as well as provide desperately needed medical equipment repair services. Through the program, students immerse themselves in the region’s language and culture while learning practical, hands-on engineering skills. Students also learn medical device design and have opportunities to use their experience to define their own design projects. As part of the program, students collaborate with the medical facility staff to increase their knowledge base as well as that of the hospital staff.
