Biomedical Engineering

Welcome!  Biomedical engineering is a very broad, interdisciplinary field that involves the application of engineering, the physical sciences and computer science to medicine and the life sciences. We are the first Biomedical Engineering Department in Canada, and uphold a tradition of leadership and excellence.

Interested in Medical Device Development?

The Graduate Certificate in Translational Biomedical Engineering will enable you to translate advances in biomedical engineering research to clinical and commercial solutions.  Students will learn the complementary skills needed to take early stage research results from the bench to the bedside and bridge the gap between invention and product innovation.
