This program is the first in Canada to offer a truly interdisciplinary 5-year biomedical program that integrates Engineering with Health Sciences. It is also the only Health Sciences program in health, engineering science and entrepreneurship.
After a common first year, students will enter either the Bachelor of Engineering and Biomedical Engineering or the Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences in Health Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship degree program.
The Health Solutions Design Projects course will cover topics in engineering ethics and professionalism, design and graphics, computation, and materials, with the key assessment being a series of biomedical-related design projects. This course is the first in a stream of integrated learning projects that flows through the program.
