Abstract

for damaged organs or tissues. We believe that our graduates will have unique interdisciplinary abilities that make them highly competitive with other biomedical engineering graduates.

F- Resources: The concentration was designed on the basis of optimally utilizing existing resources at Wentworth. The following were determined as additional required resources: 1- A Biology laboratory. This was a basic microbiology laboratory already being used in environmental engineering as a waste-water laboratory. 2- Electromechanical design laboratory. This is a laboratory used in the electromechanical engineering program. 3- A biomedical systems engineering development laboratory. This is a small laboratory used to develop and research biomedical experiments. Two faculty members, one, Salah Badjou, a biophysicist in the electromechanical engineering program, and the other an environmental engineer with education and expertise in biology, were identified for teaching the physiology courses.

Curriculum: The curriculum may be thought of as a pyramid having as the base the electromechanical engineering program, with the electrical and mechanical parts each representing half, and a biomedical concentration as the top of the pyramid. The result is a complete holistic education integrating the broadest fields of engineering with the life sciences. Table1 presents a matrix of the Electromechanical Engineering Curriculum showing the embedded Concentration in Biomedical Systems Engineering; the special requirements for this concentration are underlined.
