Master of Engineering (MEng)


The Master of Engineering (MEng) program aims to educate students and professionals on the use of design principles in engineering biomedical devices for use in human patients. Graduates of this program will play key roles in the development and commercialization of devices or agents for disease diagnosis, promote the regeneration of damaged tissues, assist in the rehabilitation of patients, and better the lives of people with disabilities.

This non-thesis degree program offers training to individuals pursuing careers related to biomedical engineering. Through a diverse catalogue of graduate courses and practical experience, trainees gain the skills required to translate ideas into commercial realities. For the full-time program, training is provided through three terms of coursework, including one term of practical experience, concentrated in the pillars of biomedical engineering technology, biomedical sciences, and entrepreneurship. Our program graduates emerge as company founders, technology leaders, and start-up creators in the healthcare sector.
