Focus Areas: Medical device design, microfabrication packaging, sensor systems and cross-platform software systems integration; application of science and technology to the creation of products and services; medical device start-ups
In January 2015, Colin re-joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering as Professor and Assistant Chair, to lead efforts in undergraduate education with a specific focus on expanding experiential design courses and professional practice preparation. Shortly after returning to the School of Engineering, Professor Drummond assumed the role of Faculty Director for the Masters of Engineering and Management Program. Colin’s research focuses on educational pedagogy, healthcare IT, entrepreneurship and innovation; much of this research has a strong translational focus, resulting in collaboration and secondary appointments in the School of Medicine and the University Hospitals Case Medical Center. Most recently, Colin was with the School of Nursing. From 2008-2013, Colin was the Director of the Coulter-Case Translational Research Partnership (CCTRP) in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. He received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Syracuse University in 1985 and an MBA in Technology Management from the Weatherhead School of Management in 1997. Professor Drummond has conducted research in the areas of medical device design, microfabrication packaging, sensor systems, and cross-platform software systems integration. For over two decades Colin has worked in the application of science and technology to the creation of products and services.
