The Institute of Biomaterials & Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) at the University offers students looking for innovative and multidisciplinary research opportunities programs in biomedical and clinical engineering.
A degree-granting research institute, students can pursue Masters in Applied Science (MASc), Masters in Health Science (MHSc), and Doctoral degrees in Biomedical Engineering (PhD).
Students in the Division of Engineering Science can also pursue biomedical engineering undergraduate courses as part of the Biomedical Systems Engineering Option. Visit the Division of Engineering Science for more information on this program.
The Institute arranges its research across four major, intersecting research fields that span the breadth of the biomedical engineering continuum:
- Neural, Sensory Systems and Rehabilitation
- Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
- Nanotechnology, Molecular Imaging and Systems Biology
- Engineering in a Clinical Setting
