The interdisciplinary partnerships and collaborations are what makes graduate studies at the School of Biomedical Engineering a unique and rich training experience. The research-intensive master’s and doctoral programs focus on the School’s four research pillars: biomaterials, biomechanics, imaging, and mechatronics.  Our graduate programs are affiliated with the Faculties of Engineering, Health Sciences, and Science; the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, and London’s hospitals and hospital-based research institutes. BME master’s and PhD alumni have gone on to successful careers in academia, the medical device industry, medicine, and many other sectors. We welcome students with honour’s degrees or equivalent from a diverse range of engineering and science disciplines. 



Minimum funding is $14,200/year + tuition + fees.  For Canadian and permanent resident students, minimum funding is $22,857 for 2018-19.  

Additionally, paid Teaching Assistantships (TAs) may be available to graduate students.
