In Cambodia, an expert team from the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, Department of Biomedical Technology, works with the support of the Czech Development Agency. For the first time in history, an educational field of Biomedical Engineering has been established here. The project was initiated by the Cambodian Ministry of Health itself, which recognized the need for this kind of study field to be established at the universities there. A team of scientists from the FBMI CTU under the guidance of Professor Karel Roubík was asked for help. Five years ago, Professor Roubík was behind a very successful project to introduce this promising and rapidly developing field in South American Columbia at Universidad Autónoma de Bucaramanga.
This year, CTU again presented itself at the National Technical Museum, where it presented its interactive exhibits and projects as part of the 16th Prague Museum Night. Visitors of all ages could discover themselves that studying science and technology at CTU in Prague can not only be interesting, but also useful for society. We introduced technical innovations, project presentations and attractions to see elsewhere than on campus.
