Round Table Approaches to Biomedical Engineering Education

  • Moderator: David FitzPatrick, College Principal and Dean of Engineering, UC Dublin, College of Engineering and Architecture, CESAER Vice-President
  • Panellists: Prof Georges Gielen, Vice Rector KU Leuven, Science, Engineering and Technology Group, Prof Jari Hyttinen, President EAMBES, Prof Karel Luyben, CESAER President, Prof Wim Robberecht, Vice Rector, KU Leuven Biomedical Sciences Group and Prof Philip Rowe, Strathclyde University.

  • Objective:Through the roundtable discussion we intended to draw on experience and awareness of the field to address the key topics of:
    (1) Biomedical Engineering (BME) Education in the context of Bologna structure (1st and 2nd Cycle degree) – examples of ‘best practice’?
    (2) Defining ‘the’ BME graduate - Industry and Clinical needs?
    (3) Degree structure and requirements – Core subjects; Core competencies; Industry/Clinical experience/engagement
    (4) BME education – Challenges and opportunities
    (5) BME education - Recommendations to programmes, faculty and policy makers
    (6) CESAER – Collaborative engagement, research and exchange opportunities.
