Abstract

An internet-based, intercultural and interprofessional 2 years Master's curriculum Biomedical Engineering was developed by a joint effort of 3 Asian and 3 European Universities. The curriculum consists of a mixture of face-to-face and e-learning courses (blended learning) and was developed and taught by teachers from all participating institutes. The internet based courses are supported by chat sessions and annual summer schools where all students and teachers meet. To test the curriculum 13 students with different cultural (Asian European) and educational (health care engineering) background enrolled, of which 8 graduated so far. External and internal evaluations were conducted and showed that the developed curriculum can be implemented with some adaptations in course contents and in the management and organization.
