Master of Applied Science
The School of Biomedical Engineering will serve as an innovation hub for education and research across both the Faculties of Applied Science and Medicine, working with industry and our health partners, to accelerate discoveries and improve health outcomes here in BC and around the world.
The School offers both undergraduate and graduate program options that emphasize a balance of biomedical engineering and life science study with a focus on clinical and industrial application. This interdisciplinary program uses engineering techniques and technologies to address needs within the medical and healthcare industries. Opportunities for education and research exist in areas such as biomechanics, biomaterials, biochemical processing, cellular engineering, imaging, medical devices, micro-electro-mechanical implantable systems, physiological modeling, simulation, monitoring and control, as well as medical robotics.
UBC’s School of Biomedical Engineering offers students unparalleled access to engineering experts in the fields of chemical and biological, electrical and computer, materials and mechanical engineering. UBC graduates have become industry leaders, especially in the medical device industry, and provide an extensive network of professionals within the community. Because of the continuing demand for top-quality biomedical engineers, ample employment opportunities exist within academia, government and industry.
