The MESc in Biomedical Engineering offers specializations in Biomaterials, Biomechanics, Mechatronics, and Imaging.

Biomedical Engineering is a program that promotes the cooperative involvement of clinical and basic researchers in allied disciplines such as imaging, biomaterials, biomechanics and mechatronics. This program encourages multidisciplinary links between the faculties of Engineering, Medicine & Dentistry, and Health Sciences, Robarts Research Institute and London Health Research Institute, and Western’s teaching hospitals.
