CIMIT engineering fellowships offer multi-year support for graduate engineering students to work in highly innovative yet traditionally underfunded areas of health-care research. Medical device development, new algorithms, software for use in clinical practices, and the engineering of medical environments are all essential to accelerate the adoption of technologies into patient care.
