The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) program is suited to students who wish to pursue their engineering education in a preferred area of specialization beyond the undergraduate level, but who do not wish to pursue a thesis research program.
The Master of Engineering (MEng) in Biomedical Engineering is a 12-16 month program aimed at students who wish to enhance their professional skills in biomedical engineering.
Students engage in a combination of course work and internship or co-op work experience. The program emphasizes the clinical and industrial aspects of biomedical engineering and prepares students for careers in hospitals and private industry.
Many students find employment as clinical engineers. Please note that students wishing to pursue a PhD should apply to the MASc in Biomedical Engineering.
The MEng program in Biomedical Engineering is designed to prepare students for employment in the public or private sector, or to pursue further studies. Recent graduates have gone on to work at Vancouver Island Health Authority, Winnipeg Health Authority, Vancouver Costal Health, Neovasc Inc, and Canadian Standards Association.
Many have started their own companies, like NrSign Inc, Arbutus Medical, and S2N Engineering Services. Those looking to pursue their MD or PhD have gone on to study at Berkeley and 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
