The main objective of the Biomedical Engineering program from Carleton University is to enhance students’ abilities to solve problems in medicine and biology through the application of engineering principles using a combination of graduate coursework, directed and individual study, thesis research work and various forms of oral and written presentations. Learn more about Ottawa-Carleton Joint Institutes.
Career paths include opportunities in education; the public sector (e.g. health care policy), hospitals and regulatory agencies; or in the private sector working with medical device manufacturers, sports/fitness equipment manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, or in rehabilitation/ orthopaedic engineering. There are also opportunities in the non-profit sector.
At the PhD level, careers may be more research-focused, e.g. biomedical data analysis, novel medical devices research and design, and simulation and modeling of diseases and biological systems. Several students interact with clinicians, healthcare organizations, or industrial partners as part of their research project.
