    Introduction

    The School of Biomedical Engineering (SBME) was newly established in August 2016. SBME aspires to be a first-rated and excellent BME-school in the world. SBME will offer student a high-quality, medical-driven learning environment with excellence in undergraduate education. Students will acquire basic ability to use mathematics, chemistry, engineering, biological, physics and medical knowledge. We encourage students to explore medical problems and unmet clinic needs. We stress the need for students to develop their ability to design, execute experiments, analyze and interpret data, and solve these problems. Students will understand and get familiar with the means to apply advanced technology to the complex problems of clinical medicine. We emphasize a clinically-oriented education to prepare students to excel as professionals in biomedical engineering. We expect students to contribute to the academic and industrial development of biomedical engineering. Students should have international vision and work on communication and collaboration skills that promote SBME in the future. We hope to nurture graduates who are not only prepared to excel in the industry and technology development in biomedical engineering, but also with a vision for the future and a global perspective. TMU system has three affiliated hospitals with approximately 3,000 beds, one of the largest health care systems in the Taipei metropolitan area. SBME will benefit from the great medical resources from TMU health care systems, and get full support for top-quality teaching, research, and clinical cooperation.
     
    During the last one year, we strived to complete several preparation works for welcoming our freshmen. Those works included SBME has recruited 34 students successfully. Our students had excellent performance in the average score of entrance examination.
