Welcome to McGill's Department of Biomedical Engineering
Explore. Innovate. Impact Health.
Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a discipline that draws upon engineering, science, and medicine to produce technologies, devices, tools, techniques, models, manufacturing processes, and scientific discoveries for the improvement of human health and well-being.
Through a partnership-based process of research, education, innovation, and translation, BME bridges engineering, science, and medicine to impact health and well-being in our communities.
Biomedical Engineering at McGill
Founded in 1989, we are the first Biomedical Engineering Department in Canada. As part of McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, home to Canada's consistently top-ranked medical school , we are in a privileged position to drive clinical research and translation of BME technologies from bench-to-bedside.
BME conducts cutting-edge research leading to tangible health benefits.
Our graduate programs train students in research, innovation, and translation, preparing them for careers in academia, industry, and government.
We integrate research and education with clinical and industry collaborations to translate BME innovations into real-world outcomes.
