The Biomedical Engineering program is offered and administered by the School of Biomedical Engineering. The objective of the program is to educate students in the design and analysis of medical devices and in the application of the principles of engineering science to solve problems in medicine and the biomedical sciences. The program will include an intensive 12- month research experience from the Summer term of Year 3 through the Winter term of Year 4. The summer portion will be in the form of a paid co-op experience during which each student will begin a major project that he or she will continue as a capstone project in Year 4. Students in the Biomedical Engineering program follow the same curriculum for the first year as other engineering students.
