BMEN 489 Service Learning: Beyond Design

The required BMEN 403/404 design sequence is centered on the design and construction of a device or system to assist an individual with a disability or a group servicing such individuals. As an option, students may choose to supplement their interaction with their clients with a service learning component that follows Tulane's guidelines for service learning courses and specifically requires: Completing at least 40 hours in a community setting during the semester; keeping a journal of weekly activities that will allow the student to describe and evaluate his/her experiences with the activity; and creating a product that can be evaluated as part of the course grade (e.g., a review paper on an issue relevant to the service activity, or some product of value to the site).

pre-rec: Approval of instructor.
co-rec: BMEN 403 or 404.
