This paper presents biomedical engineering education initiatives, from a student perspective, at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. Over recent years, efforts made by graduate students and professors have been noticeably successful in promoting biomedical engineering to students as young as 13. A recent biomedical engineering career event drew considerable positive attention and precipitated the consolidation of an already strong emerging biomedical core within the department of Systems and Computer Engineering. Capitalizing on the success of past events, an Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) student club was created with the express purpose of gathering all interesting parties within the same framework. The club's main goal is to develop a strong biomedical education program in order to attract potential students, and create strong partnerships with the biomedical industry.
Date of Conference: 17-21 Sept. 2003
