Biomedical Engineering

The Division of Biomedical Engineering offers postgraduate programs leading to the P.G.D and the M.ENG., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. Research in the Division is of an interdisciplinary nature involving the application of Engineering Sciences to the solution of specific problems in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and related fields.

The following are focal areas for the activity:

  • biomechanics
  • biomedical signal and image processing
  • medical instrumentation
  • use of the Biomedical Beam Line of the Canadian Light Source

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

Students applying for the programs are encouraged to explore the research expertise of our faculty and contact faculty members directly to inquire about their willingness to act a potential supervisor. 

Send the following to the Graduate Chair in the Division of Biomedical Engineering:

  • Two official copies of your academic transcript(s): photocopies are fine at the time of initial application.
  • Three letters of recommendation, with at least one from a professor familiar with your scholarly work.
  • A curriculum vitae or resume

International students must provide proof of English proficiency

All candidates must also submit a brief statement of research interest. 

FUNDING AND SCHOLARSHIPS

In their applications, students should identify their financial status and state if attendance is contingent on receiving financial aid. The department employs graduate students as marking assistants and a limited number of scholarships, research fellowships and teaching assistantships are available. There is a keen competition for this financial support. Applications for Departmental Scholarships, Research Fellowships and Teaching Assistantships may only be submitted after a student has been admitted.
