Center of Excellence in Biomedical Imaging
As a part of the Chancellor’s
strategic research development
initiative, the College of Engineering and Applied Science has
engaged in a partnership with the
Medical College of Wisconsin and
GE Healthcare Systems to establish
an interdisciplinary Center of Excellence in Biomedical Imaging at
UWM. The goal of the Center will
be to bring together researchers
from Physical Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering toward the
study of pure and applied problems
in biomedical imaging. The core
mission of the Center will be the
education and training of students,
along with the conduct of externally
funded research. The College is
currently seeking participation from
faculty of CEAS, Physics, Mathematics, Health Sciences, Biological
Sciences, MCW, and from research
staff of GE healthcare Systems.
CEAS faculty with background in
imaging, materials, electronic systems (sensors/power distribution/
communication), software and security, ergonomics/patient interface,
and computational mechanics are
encouraged to participate in this initiative. The establishment of the
Center will be the focus of a proposal that the College will soon submit to the Chancellor under his new
Strategic Research Development
Program. For additional information please contact Associate Dean
Al Ghorbanpoor or Professor
David Klemer.

Development of New
Research Space
The College of Engineering and
Applied Science has recently received funding in excess of $1.1
million for two renovation projects
on the second and third floors of
the EMS building. The renovation
is expected to occur between May
and December 2005. The second
floor project includes renovation of
E250 and E260 to develop a stateof-the-art computer lab and classroom space. The renovation on the
third floor will convert the space in
E371 into twelve new student organization offices, six computational research labs, and a new conference/meeting room. Each Research lab will be approximately
100 square feet and will be furnished with appropriate workstations (desks/cabinets/chair). These
labs will be assigned to appropriate
CEAS faculty who primarily conduct computational research. The
labs are appropriate for use by research graduate students who work
under the supervision of the faculty
in charge of the lab. For additional
information, please contact Associate Dean Al Ghorbanpoor.

of information technology in biomedical research, medicine and
healthcare, will begin in the fall semester of 2005.
The College of Engineering and Applied Science along with the College
of Nursing, the School of Information Science, the College of Health
Sciences, and the School of Business Administration are participat-
ing in this interdisciplinary program
with the Medical College of Wisconsin.
There are four tracks of this new
degree that will be offered:

will host a Mock Interview and an
Employer in Residence Program.
Mock Interviews, February 21-25,
are an opportunity for students to
meet with employers for a practice
interview followed by constructive
feedback. Employer in Residence
allows students to meet with employers for advice regarding their
resume, interviewing, salary negotiations and the job search. Program
dates will be announced throughout
the semester. For additional information call 229-3208.
