A multi-year plan for establishing a new paradigm specifically designed to integrate novel content material into the existing curriculum in biomedical engineering (BME) is described. The aim is to develop a prototype that provides a better-rounded engineering education in general, and that imparts fundamental and contemporary biomedical engineering (BME) knowledge. The use of BME as the novel content and the electrical and computer engineering (ECE) as the core curriculum can provide ECE students with fundamental and contemporary BME knowledge for future career and graduate study opportunities. This approach is versatile, and supports the integration of any number of topics, not only BME related, that the faculty deems important in the curriculum.
