The Program

Biomedical Engineering is a program that promotes the cooperative involvement of clinical and basic researchers in allied disciplines such as biomaterials, biomechanics and imaging. This program encourages multidisciplinary links between the faculties of Engineering, Medicine & Dentistry, and Health Sciences, Robarts Research Institute and London Health Research Institute, and Western’s teaching hospitals.


Our objective in Biomedical Engineering is to produce highly trained, qualified BME graduates who plan careers in research and development.

We... Offer MESc and PhD degrees more...

Program Context

The context for a Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program at The University of Western Ontario is rooted in the many successful, collaborative, interdisciplinary teams currently engaged in biomedical engineering-related research at Western. The proposed Program has the potential to span departmental and institutional boundaries, bringing together diverse expertise to focus on common educational objectives and research problems.
