Undergraduate Studies


Western's new Biomedical Engineering undergraduate program is a response to the demand by students and the future needs of the health-care industry. With technology playing an increasingly large role in health care, biomedical engineers are at the forefront of developing solutions to current problems and advancing future medicine.

The program is designed to be taken as a five-year concurrent degree in conjunction with a degree in a core engineering discipline – chemical, electrical, mechanical, or mechatronic systems engineering. Graduates of the concurrent-degree program will be well-qualified for engineering positions in the medical device sector and a variety of other sectors, admission to leading biomedical engineering graduate programs, and admission to medical school.
