The purpose of this symposium is to discuss the significance and the strategy to found the department of bio-medical engineering in Japan. The department of bio-medical engineering has been already established in most of the leading universities in Europe and the United States of America since 1950, while there are a few institutes of the bio-medical engineering in Japan. It is the mandatory issue to be solved in order to grow the young generation up to the international level in the field of biomedical engineering and to strengthen the international competition in medical industry. We would like to show some direction toward the foundation of the department of bio-medical engineering by discussing the current problems and learning the history and the strategy from the founders.
