Program Information

School:University of Ottawa/Université d'Ottawa
Faculty:Faculty of Engineering
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:Biomedical/Medical Engineering
Description:The purpose of the Biomedical Mechanical Engineering program is to graduate engineers proficient in the areas of biomedical science related to mechanical engineering. These engineers specialize in areas that include the following: design of artificial hearts, implants, prostheses, and other medical devices, development and selection of bio-compatible metallic and non metallic materials for implants and medical equipment, robotics for medical applications and biomechanics and rehabilitation engineering.

This program is similar in structure to the mechanical engineering program but it includes courses in the biomedical field that replace a quarter of the conventional program. This program’s broad scope gives its graduates a wide range of career options, not only in the biomedical field but also in conventional mechanical engineering. Biomedical systems are among the most complex mechanical systems; therefore, a strong and comprehensive education in standard mechanical engineering principles is provided, with emphasis on their application to biomedical systems.
