Bridging the gap between medicine and technology, biomedical engineering is where cutting-edge innovations are changing the face of health care. As a graduate student of our program, you will work alongside a team of distinguished faculty members in biomedical research and development. Here, you can apply your engineering talent to develop new life-saving technologies – for example, medical imaging, wearable devices, surgical robotics and laboratory-grown tissues and organs.

With clinical collaboration and industry application at the core of everything we do, our students can access a community of renowned research facilities, including those at St. Michael’s Hospital and the University Health Network. Through longstanding partnerships with top Toronto hospitals, you’ll have the opportunity to make a direct impact on patient care while also advancing your research and career possibilities.

Under the guidance of one of our experienced faculty supervisors, pursue a master of applied science (MASc) or doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree to lead world-class research in one of three fields of study: biomaterials, biomechanics or biomedical signals and systems. Or accelerate your career through industry-related projects and professional training via our master of engineering (MEng) degree.

Whichever path aligns with your professional goals, our interdisciplinary program will place you at the forefront of technological advancement and biomedical discovery, helping health practitioners enhance patient care with faster diagnoses and more effective therapies that lead to improved outcomes.
