The Biomedical Engineering program is offered and administered by the School of Biomedical Engineering. The objective of the program is to educate students in the design and analysis of medical devices and in the application of the principles of engineering science to solve problems in medicine and the biomedical sciences. The program will include an intensive 12- month research experience from the Summer term of Year 4 through the Winter term of Year 5. The summer portion will optionally be in the form of a paid co-op experience during which each student will begin a major project that he or she will continue as a research thesis project in Year 5. Students in the Biomedical Engineering program follow the same curriculum for the first year as other engineering students.

The Biomedical Engineering program must be taken as part of a concurrent degree with one of:

Chemical Engineering Option F,
Electrical Engineering Option H,
Mechanical Engineering Option F,
Mechatronic Systems Engineering Option D.

Acceptance into one of the above Options does not guarantee acceptance into the Biomedical Engineering concurrent degree program.

Admission to Biomedical Engineering is competitive; meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Students entering the Biomedical Engineering program must have completed the entire first-year and second-year program requirements. Refer to the Biomedical Engineering concurrent degree programs below for additional requirements.
