The critical components of an effective biomedical engineering (BME) laboratory curriculum and teaching methodologies, are discussed. One approach to designing a BME laboratory curriculum is to determine the core competencies that are to be acquired by the students, Some of the core competencies are engineering reasoning and problem solving, experimental design and data analysis, and laboratory techniques. An effective teaching methodology should include lectures, pre-laboratory exercises, demonstration exercise, and inquiry-based learning (IBL).
