DescriptionThe Integrated Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences (iBioMed) program is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program that will give students a strong foundation in both engineering and health sciences. Students will have a common first year before choosing to specialize in either health sciences or engineering in their second year.Bachelor of Engineering and Biomedical Engineering (B.Eng. BME) degree: Learn fundamental skills and techniques in both biomedical engineering and chosen core discipline. Eight engineering disciplines to choose from (Civil, Chemical, Electrical, Engineering Physics, Materials, Mechanical, Mechatronics, and Software). The admissions into one of these engineering disciplines will be based off of first year academic performance and the availability of space in the discipline.
