Facilities

Teaching Laboratory

IBBME Teaching Lab is one of the teaching facilities for wet lab

The Teaching Laboratory a one of the teaching facilities hosted by BME. With more than 3,000 square foot, it houses state-of-the-art technologies for multidisciplinary engineering education.

Its main space and the adjacent Cell & Tissue Culture Room has a capacity for 60 students and instructors combined.

In addition to facilitating the practical components of more than 10 biomedical engineering courses, the BME Teaching Lab also hosts classes for the Departments of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry (ChemE), Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), Mechanical & Industrial Engineering (MIE) as well as the Division of Engineering Science in collaboration with the U of T Institute of Aerospace Studies (UTIAS).

A number of the laboratory's instruments are acquired with the support of the Engineering Society's Student Levy Fund.

Design Studio

Design Studio Collaboration Suite is one of the teaching facilities for hardware design

The BME Design Studio is an instructional and collaboration space for biomedical engineering design and education.

It also houses a variety of 3D printing resources for use by students and researchers at U of T.

The Design Studio is made up of two distinct spaces for advanced learning (details below). Together, they enable interdisciplinary course delivery, training and career development opportunities for students across the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine.

Both spaces have open-access hours available to students across the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering for the completion of course assignments and design projects. Reservation priority will be given to students in biomedical engineering.

Student clubs may also request access to this space. Fees for time and materials use may apply.


Collaboration Suite—MB 78

The Collaboration Suite is a technology-enabled, flexible training space that houses interactive tools including a smart board, networked display screens and modular work surfaces.

This space is ideally suited for the instruction of design courses and group-based projects.


Fabrication & Prototyping Suite—MB 64

The Fabrication & Prototyping Suite houses advanced tools for rapid production and testing of biomedical devices.

Available equipment include 3D printers, electronic testing equipment, bioelectrical data acquisition units (BioRadios), stereomicroscopes and soldering stations.
