UBC’s School of Biomedical Engineering offers a BASc program that is a collaborative undertaking of the Faculty of Applied Science and the Faculty of Medicine.

The Undergraduate Program

Biomedical Engineering is an emerging field that takes engineering principles and design and applies it to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes. After first year, students take a general second year that introduces them to the four main pillars (streams) of our biomedical engineering program – biomechanics & biomaterials, bioinformatics, cellular bioengineering, and biomedical systems and signals. In third year, students decide on which stream they would like to focus their studies. Students will graduate with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering.
