The Master of Applied Science (MASc) in Biomedical Engineering is a 2-year research-based program. The program trains students in the fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering and provides an extended research experience.
Graduates are qualified for a variety of career routes, including continuing on to PhD programs as well as pursuing research and development positions in industry, hospitals and other institutions.
Biomedical Engineers apply their knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine to healthcare and medical device industries. Biomedical Engineering is a distinct field that encompasses engineering disciplines, biology, life sciences, medicine, clinical applications, and the improvement of human health.
Since 2006, our MASC program has trained students in the fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering, providing extensive research experience in biomechanics, biomaterials, biochemical processing, cellular engineering, imaging, medical devices, micro-electro-mechanical implantable systems, and physiological modeling, simulation, monitoring, and control, as well as medical robotics.
Graduates continue on to PhD programs as well as research and development positions in industry and other institutions. A professional program, Master of Engineering, is also available.
The MASc program in Biomedical Engineering is designed to prepare students for employment in the public or private sector, or to pursue further studies in a PhD program. Recent graduates have gone on to work at Winnepeg Health Authority, Vancouver Costal Health, and Neovasc Inc.
Many have started their own companies, like Arbutus Medical, NrSign Inc, and S2N Engineering Services. Those looking to pursue their MD or Phd have gone on to study at Berkeley, Cambridge, Stanford, University of Tokyo, University of Toronto, as well as UBC. A burgeoning field, ample opportunities exist in the medical instrument industry, pharmaceutical/biochemical industry, hospitals, medical research facilities and educational institutions, and regulatory bodies, governments, and industry associations.
