Mechanical Engineering, University of Utah
Originally from Pocatello, Idaho, Hunter Mansfield chose EnMed in hopes to build the foundational skills, understanding, and connections needed to be successful with medical devices.
“I hope to see several ideas of my own and my classmates go from concept to market,” he said. “I chose EnMed because I believe innovation is the driving force behind medical progress. Innovation is why we can expect to live twice as long as people 100 years ago, and innovation is how we are going to decrease the cost and increase the accessibility of healthcare in the years to come.”
A born tinkerer with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Utah, Mansfield plans to channel his passions into the bio-design process to create innovations that generate better outcomes for patients all over the world. His research interests include electromechanical devices, biometric wearables, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and rural medicine.
For hobbies, he enjoys soccer, backpacking, camping, photography and videography, dirt and mountain biking, and skiing.
