Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
  • Resume/Curriculum Vitae
  • Statement of Research Interests
Candidates applying to the Master's program in Biomedical Engineering need to have completed at least a four-year undergraduate degree in engineering, or a related field in the biomedical sciences (e.g. biology, biochemistry, physiology, immunology, genetics, etc.), from a recognized institution. A minimum grade point average (GPA) or equivalent of 3.00/4.33 (B) for MEng and 3.33/4.33 (B+) for MASc in the last two years of study is required for admission consideration.
