This new program is the first in Canada to offer a truly interdisciplinary 5-year biomedical program that integrates Engineering with Health Sciences. It is also the only Health Sciences program in health, engineering science and entrepreneurship.
After a common first year, students will enter either the Bachelor of Engineering and Biomedical Engineering or the Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences in Health Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship degree program.
To promote collaboration throughout the five-year program, students complete a series of project –based design courses intended to develop their working knowledge of contemporary issues related to society, ethics, and professionalism while developing biomedical engineering solutions to real-world healthcare problems.
Biomedical engineering is a developing field requiring graduates with both specialized training and interdisciplinary breadth across many areas of study. This innovative program aims to produce such graduates, by placing a greater emphasis on interdisciplinary education, translational design, and innovation and entrepreneurship.
Applied learning opportunities with a strong emphasis on inquiry and problem-based learning.

Beginning in second year, students will pursue more specialized courses of study in the Bachelor of Engineering and Biomedical Engineering (B.Eng. BME.) degree or the Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences (B.H.Sc.) degree in Health, Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship.
Students in the B.Eng.BME. degree will also be admitted to one of eight Level II Engineering programs (Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Engineering Physics, Materials, Mechanical, Mechatronics, or Software).
Level II Program Selection:
As enrolment is limited in each of the two degree options, where there is more demand than spaces, competition will be based on first-year academic achievement.
Bachelor of Engineering & Biomedical Engineering – 90 spaces
Bachelor of Health Sciences in Health, Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship – 50 spaces
Graduates will not only be uniquely positioned for careers in:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Biotechnology & Health
- Biomedical Science sectors of the economy
- Graduate Research
- Professional Health Science careers (i.e. Medicine)
- Private Sector opportunities
Students in the Bachelor of Engineering and Biomedical Engineering degree may enter the co-op option.
A minimum of 12 months of paid industrial practical experience.
