Bioengineering Minor


The Bioengineering minor is available to undergraduate engineering students at the University of Toronto. The minor provides in-depth knowledge from molecular and cell scale engineering, manufacturing of biosystems and devices, to translation of technologies ranging from sustainable energy and renewable bioproducts to patient care.

Admission requirements

Except for Engineering Science* students in the Biomedical Engineering major, all engineering undergraduates are eligible to enroll in the Bioengineering minor.

*Engineering Science students who are not from the Biomedical Engineering major are also eligible to enroll.

Application procedures

  1. Apply to an undergraduate engineering program. Select the application option that matches your academic history.
  2. Declare the Bioengineering minor. Submit the Bioengineering enrollment form.

Program pathways

The Bioengineering minor offers two pathways after the completion of compulsory courses. Pathways include A) Biomedical Engineering and B) Bioprocess Engineering. Although, students may customize courses to focus on a specific pathway, neither path is restrictive. In other words, students may also mix and match courses as desired. To complete the minor, students must take compulsory and technical elective courses to total 3.0 FCE.
