Solves practical challenges with a 3D model
Thus, the project involves developing a 3D model of the wireless blood glucose meter, and designing the electronics using computer programs.
This implies a slightly different approach to the project, but the students still face many challenges that must be solved based on calculations, theoretical understanding and professional literature.
‘It is quite cool that it is possible to produce such a device entirety by means of 3D modelling programs,’ says Sindre.
‘Then the project gets a practical approach, although it is a pity that we do not physically get the blood glucose meter in our hands and can test if it works.’
‘In addition, everything we do now can be used to develop the sensor later, when things are normalized,’ Jon adds.
After school jobs have given students the opportunity to borrow a large room upstairs in a building on the harbour in Oslo. Here is enough space, little noise, a separate kitchen and possible to stay long at a time. It fits well because the bachelor thesis takes more and more time beyond the spring semester.
Found the bachelor project on their own
They went out on their own, tried to find a project for the bachelor's thesis, and contacted Norway Health Tech, an umbrella organization for medical-technical companies.
- We were allowed to send e-mails to several of the companies, and found MecSense, which was a good fit to work with.
Basically it's their project, and they thought it was really good to be able to work together, Jon says.
The students think it is important to be out early contacting companies to get the most interesting assignments.
