Master of Applied Science (MASc)


The MASc in Biomedical Engineering is a research-focused program that immerses students in the application of biomedical sciences and engineering principles to advance solutions for challenges in human health. MASc students receive a guaranteed minimum stipend for two years. Exceptional students may be considered for transfer to the PhD program within the first year of study.

Length of study

Five terms (defined as the period for an academically well-prepared student to complete all program requirements while registered full-time).

Admission requirements

  • A four-year bachelor’s degree in engineering, medicine, dentistry, physical sciences, or biological sciences, or its equivalent, with an average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 grade point average scale (i.e., mid-B) in the final two years of study from a recognized university.
