Welcome to UBC’s new School of Biomedical Engineering

Established as a strategic partnership between UBC’s Faculties of Applied Science and Medicine, and supported through recent investments from the BC government, we are very excited to be building the School on a foundation of research and teaching excellence at the University of British Columbia. Significant resources have been put into creating the School and activities are starting to ramp up, including hiring new faculty, launching new programs and building new partnerships. As we get going over the next year we anticipate many updates to our programs so please visit our web site often. Learn more here.
