Master of Health Science (MHSc)


The Master of Health Science (MHSc) in Clinical Engineering educates students on how to apply and implement medical technologies to optimize modern health-care delivery.

This two-year, full-time engineering degree program consists of academic courses, a research thesis and provides students with real-world exposure through several internships with private sector companies, hospitals and/or research facilities.

Program Components:

  • ~2 year research thesis
  • 6 half-credit courses
  • 4-8 month internship

Admission requirements

Basic Requirements

  • 4 year undergraduate degree in engineering from a university of appropriate standing
  • B (3.0/4.0) in the final 2 years of study*
  • Acceptance into this program is conditional upon finding and confirming a supervisor

*Despite the requirement of GPA of 3.7 on the SGS website, we'll be reviewing all applications above GPA 3.0.

English Language Proficiency

All applicants holding degrees from universities outside Canada, in which the official language of instruction/evaluation is not English, must demonstrate facility in English using one of the following methods.Only official test results, forwarded directly from the testing institution will be considered valid. This requirement must be met at the time of application.


Students are required to complete a minimum of 625 hrs (4 months full-time) internship outside of their thesis lab and work. Students may complete up to a maximum of 8 months of internship work. This additional 4 months can be a continuation of the first internship, a new internship, or work related to the student’s thesis. The final decision on whether a student should focus on their thesis or seek an additional internship outside the lab lays in the student’s hands. Should the student choose to work on their thesis in these 4 months, funding is contingent on the supervisor’s ability to provide funding. Funding for industry internships is typically $10,000/4 months, and $8,000-$10,000 for thesis-based internships.
