    The Graduate Student Experience in BME at Western

    BME offers a unique and rich training experience! 

    The majority of our laboratories are housed in research institutes, hospitals and related facilities, and hence exposes our trainees to clinically relevant research with scientific researchers, engineers and physicians working as a team. 

    Our students receive highly competitive funding support.  Moreover, paid Teaching Assistantships (TAs) are available to our graduate students to assist in courses primarily in Mechanical & Materials, Chemical & Biochemical, and Electrical & Computer Engineering. 

    Our trainees move on to rewarding careers in biomedical engineering, which has recently been flagged as the top career-path, according to CNN Money

    Outside of research and academics, BME trainees enjoy competing for our intramural teams in volleyball, flag frisbee and softball to name a few.  A number of social activities throughout the year are also enjoyed.
