What is Electrical and Biomedical Engineering?
Biomeds deal at the interface between electrical engineering, biological sciences and medicine. As such, they need a stronger background in the life sciences, namlely biology, chemistry, anatomy, and physiology. Biomeds take all core electrical and computer engineering courses, as well as related medical courses. The enrolement in this program is capped, due to the intensive course and lab requirements, thus making it very competitive. As a result, the biomedical program is heavier than either the computer or electrical engineering programs and opens many exciting future opportunities!
What Can You Do After Graduation?
- Work as a Biomedical Engineer - medical imaging specialist, prosthetic designer, medical robotics, design medical devices (e.g., MRI machines), pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing, etc.
- Work as an Electrical Engineer - you have all the core electrical engineering qualifications!
- Apply to Medical School
- Completing the program gives you to prerequisites to apply to Medical School
- Go to Graduate School, i.e., M.Eng., M.A.Sc., Ph.D.
- Study cutting-edge topics, such as: Prosthetic Limbs, Brain Stimulation,
Implants, and Hearing Aid Devices, etc.
- ECE Alumni in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering, Corey Centen, Sarah Smith, and Nilesh Patel founded Atreo Medical Inc., after inventing the award-winning CPRGloveTM.
