Engineering Global Development

Muhammad Zaman explained how he confronts his students with “a world out there that does not even [...]have the basic necessities” and asks how the best of Western technology and medicine can address that problem. Zaman, an ENG assistant professor of biomedical engineering and a member of the Center for Global Health & Development, said the meter his students developed is now being tested. It costs $20, a fraction of what similar technology used at Boston Medical Center would run, he said. In addition to designing new technology, his students ponder questions outside engineering that are relevant in the developing world, where $20 can be big money: “Who should own it? How do you address the IT issues, the copyright issues?”
