Professional Degree courses in Dentistry, Education, Law, Medicine and Theology (MTS, MDiv)
Courses offered by Continuing Studies
Graduate Studies courses
* These courses are equivalent to pre-university introductory courses and may be counted for credit in the student's record, unless these courses were taken in a preliminary year. They may not be counted toward essay or breadth requirements, or used to meet modular admission requirements unless it is explicitly stated in the Senate-approved outline of the module.

A course that must be successfully completed prior to registration for credit in the desired course.
A course that must be taken concurrently with (or prior to registration in) the desired course.
Courses that overlap sufficiently in course content that both cannot be taken for credit.
Many courses at Western have a significant writing component. To recognize student achievement, a number of such courses have been designated as essay courses and will be identified on the student's record (E essay full course; F/G/Z essay half-course).
A first year course that is listed by a department offering a module as a requirement for admission to the module. For admission to an Honours Specialization module or Double Major modules in an Honours Bachelor degree, at least 3.0 courses will be considered principal courses.
The objective of this course is to develop design skills and tools used in Biomedical Engineering. Integration of the engineering and life sciences will be illustrated by presenting design principles for medical devices and systems. Emphasis will be placed on engineering design for the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems.
Engineering principles relevant to the study of neurophysiology, neural modeling, and the design of neural systems for diagnostic, interventional, and rehabilitation applications. Course topics will include EEG and EMG systems, functional MRI and other neural imaging technologies, braincomputer interfaces, and neural prosthetics.
This course introduces key topics in interdisciplinary biomedical engineering involving the investigation or application of cell-based systems. Students will learn to integrate engineering design principles and mathematical models with knowledge of applied cellular and molecular biology to characterize, understand and optimize cellular responses within 3-D engineered microenvironments.
A major independent research project in biomedical engineering performed in collaboration with a faculty supervisor. Lectures and online modules on laboratory safety, human and animal research ethics, scientific integrity, experimental design, medical statistics, literature searching tools, and scientific communication. Two oral presentations and a written report are required.
