In second year, students will pursue more specialized courses of study in either the Bachelor of Engineering and Biomedical Engineering (B.Eng. BME.) degree or the Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences in Health, Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship (B.H.Sc. HESE) degree.


Students in the B.Eng.BME degree cover fundamental skills and techniques in both biomedical engineering and a chosen core discipline. There are eight core disciplines to choose from, including Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, and Software Engineering. Admissions into one of these engineering disciplines will be based on first-year academic performance and the availability of space in the discipline.


Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences Health Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship (B.H.Sc. HESE) integrates engineering, health sciences and entrepreneurship, creating a hybrid graduate that interacts with clinicians, researchers and patients. Health and Engineering Entrepreneurship courses from level two to level five integrate business and engineering concepts including; organizational behaviour, leadership, finance and marketing, discovery, validation, design thinking, and more. Students will work in groups to create value from problems in the health and engineering disciplines by learning how to develop and market a concept.

Level II Program Selection:

As enrolment is limited in each degree options, where there is more demand than spaces, competition will be based on first-year academic achievement.

Bachelor of Engineering & Biomedical Engineering – 105 spaces

Bachelor of Health Sciences in Health, Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship – 50 spaces
