Biomedical Engineering as STEM Education in Georgia and New Chalenges for Internationalisation of This Process


This paper presents some aspects of developing STEM education in Georgia, and internationalization of this process by preparing Biomedical Engineering Program for ABET accreditation. Methodology for using Project courses for assessing a number of ABET outcomes. In the advent of EC 2000, Engineering programs have grappled with methods for assessing some of the ABET outcomes, especially those skills which are not taught in the traditional engineering programs. Team and Capstone Design courses taken by IV year in the Georgian Technical of Engineering over a two-semester period. Each course is team-taught by professors in Biomedical Engineering Departments consisting of Biomedical engineering Program Student teams. The capstone design courses are used to assess ABET 1-7 outcomes. Students’ abilities in these outcomes are quantitatively measured using outcome specific project related lectures and assignments given throughout the semesters. The methodology discussed in the paper has made it possible to identify problems encountered by students in these outcome skills, thereby, facilitating adjustment in course content and delivery, and formulation of plans to assist students to improve on these skills. Education specifically related to scientific research, technology, engineering and mathematical disciplines (STEM) are the best measure for increasing Georgia's economic prosperity interests.
