Biomedical Engineering

Be part of medical innovation. The growing field of Biomedical Engineering fuses engineering design and problem solving to improve human health.

Biomedical Engineers apply the principles and technologies associated with engineering to design innovative ways to improve human health and quality of life.  In this hands-on program, you will study anatomy, physiology and pathology as well as courses in electronics, mechanics, and computer science.  Biomedical Engineers examine bio-systems from molecular to a full body scale to understand what happens when something goes wrong, as in the case of injury or disease.  Biomedical Engineering can also be an entry point into medical school.

In Biomedical Engineering at Guelph, students can pursue interests in:

  • Biomechanics and the design of medical implants 
  • Ergonomics and prosthetic device design 
  • Biosignal processing and instrumentation
