UCSB Capstone Project: Endoscopic Bipolar Forceps
This was a year-long undergraduate engineering project I accomplished during my senior year at University of California Santa Barbara. Under the sponsorship of Medtronic Neurosurgery, I led a group of five undergraduate mechanical engineering students to design, prototype, and test endoscopic bipolar forceps. The device is intended to be used in neurosurgical procedures to manipulate and cauterize tissue.


At the end of the project a public presentation was given by all the undergraduate engineering teams to the public. Each team set up with a booth and a poster and presented to university faculty, invited guests from the engineering industry, and anyone who choose to attend. The teams also a presented to a group of judges made up of engineering professors and engineers from local companies.

This poster was what was presented by my team. Our presentation was awarded with "Most Innovative Design", one of three awards given to the approximately 80 senior mechanical engineers. 


Before work began on the complete prototype, my team presented a full report on our design, as well as our analysis and testing results to justify that our design was ready for prototype manufacturing.
