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 External link, 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.

Innovation & Translation

We integrate research and education with clinical and industry collaborations to translate BME innovations into real-world outcomes.
