Collaborating with the Samueli School's Engineering Design in Industry (EDI)
program, Pro-Dex was one of three participating companies in the EDI program
this past year. Five senior engineering students worked on a "real-world"
engineering challenge as part of Pro-Dex's development of a new proprietary
staple delivery device for use in small bone and extremity surgeries.

"Forging industry-university relations and the chance for graduating students
to meet and work with engineers and program managers from local companies on a
weekly basis is the key to this program's success," says Dr. John Garman, EDI
manager, recruiter and instructor. "I think it's safe to say no other course
offered in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department has a higher
rate of student job placement – this is our metric for excellence."

Pro-Dex Vice President of Engineering, Sid Desai, commented, "Working with
future leaders and innovators in design and manufacturing is key to Pro-Dex's
long-term strategy for growth." Desai added, "UCI Engineering is renowned for
its talented and innovative engineering alumni. Our team was continually
impressed with the students' enthusiasm and insight in solving key challenges
through the design improvements they suggested for this device."

The EDI program is a group, project-oriented design class tasked with solving
engineering design challenges posed by participating industry partners such as
Pro-Dex. Partners participating in the most recent round of projects
represented industries ranging from consumer products to medical devices. Each
participating company provided its design challenge, and interfaced with
faculty and students to develop an improved product. With 10 weeks to complete
the project, students worked on-site with the industry partners providing
input on key project elements such as material selection, design for
manufacturing changes, and 3-D models of the suggested improvements and
solutions. More information on the program and recent industry sponsored
projects can be found at https://eee.uci.edu/programs/edi/.
