The Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) offers facilities for research in biomedical engineering and for three educational programs leading to master’s and doctoral degrees. Students may be registered in the MASc or PhD programs through the institute. Students interested in the Collaborative Program in Biomedical Engineering may register through one of the collaborating graduate units.
Biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field that integrates engineering and biology/medicine. It uses methods, principles, and tools of engineering, physical sciences, and mathematics to solve problems in the medical and life sciences for the study of living systems; the enhancement and replacement of those systems; the design and construction of systems to measure basic physiological parameters; the development of instruments, materials, and techniques for biological and medical practice; and the development of artificial organs and other medical devices. By its nature, the majority of the institute’s work is interdisciplinary.
