Elizabeth Logsdon is a senior lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. She is associate director of academic programs in BME, co-director of the BME Design Team program, and director of the BME Design Studio, a facility that supports all design courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs.
As associate director of undergraduate programs, Logsdon works across undergraduate, master’s, and PhD programs to support curricular innovation and development. She oversees all undergraduate advising and the objectives connecting to the student experience. This includes orientations, student trajectories through the BME curriculum, and personalized advising–matching students to faculty advisors based on interests and specialty training.
Logsdon teaches the design process in the capstone undergraduate Design Team program, a suite of eight courses that train student leaders and teams in the design process from identifying needs to validating solutions. In addition to teaching the principles of design, prototyping, and medical device regulation, Logsdon also contributes to teaching in the BME biology curriculum including the biochemistry course and freshman biology experience.
