Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering
Students specializing in Bioengineering will complete the program outlined below: two semesters in Engineering Fundamentals and a further period of study in the Department of Bioengineering - ten semesters in Departmental Studies (for the Bachelor of Science degree) and professional fifth year in Graduate Studies (for the Master of Engineering degree). This curriculum is designed as an integrated five-year program, with a cooperative education component and a masters-level research project, culminating in the Master of Engineering degree. The curriculum in this degree program is structured to require that students develop skills and competency in Bioengineering, by applying engineering and science principals to biomedical and life sciences.
