The final graduating requirement for UBC’s biomedical engineering students is the capstone design project. The projects challenge students to apply the knowledge and skills they learned throughout their degree to real world problems. Students will design a product/services of significance and solve an open-ended problem in Biomedical Engineering.

The students work in small teams under the close supervision of a faculty advisor and, when possible, mentored by a practicing Professional Engineer from industry. Students are required to build a model of their designs, and if funds are available, a working prototype for the client.

Students must register in BMEG 450 – Biomedical Engineering Design Project.
