The integration of engineering and medicine in recent years has led to the development of technological innovations in the health field, that is why this area has been declared emergent in many countries and it has become a basic research discipline. In this paper we describe the experience in the academic support of the Electronic Engineering Department at the Salesian Polytechnic University of Cuenca for development projects of biomedical engineering from 2001 in order to establish guidelines to begin with the research group GIIB-UPS. The main objectives are to enrich the teaching and learning method in Biomedical Engineering, to strengthen the social appropriation of knowledge of the results of research around biomedical engineering in the University and to establish guidelines to begin the process of forming the first research group in this field in Ecuador. Based on results to date, we conclude that biomedical engineering education must ensure a positive work environment in which students will develop social sensibility with professional ethic and learn about the importance in their profession of multidisciplinary cooperation with professionals in the biomedical field. The proper progress of a research group requires time and planning for research training by lecturers and students. © 2012 IEEE.
