WS-01: IFMBE Workshop: Biomedical Engineering/Clinical Engineering Education

BME EDUCATION IN SINGAPORE AND SOUTH EAST ASIA


Alberto Corrias, Siew Lok Toh


National University of Singapore, Singapore


In this talk, we will present an overview of Biomedical Engineering (BME) education in Singapore and South East Asia at undergraduate and graduate level. The first BME programme in the region was established at the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2001. Over a dozen BME programmes are now available in various other countries including Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. 

We will focus on the NUS BME programme and try to identify similarities and differences among the various programmes in the region. In particular, we will look at the body of knowledge (BOK) that is deemed essential in the educational approach to BME.
