About the Department of Bioengineering

The Department of Bioengineering, established in 2012, is the newest academic unit in McGill University’s renowned Faculty of Engineering. In Fall 2016, the Department launched a full-time undergraduate program, admitting its first cohort of students. The program is designed to provide students with fundamental knowledge in natural sciences, engineering, and mathematics, as they relate to the field of bioengineering. Those pursuing an undergraduate degree in Bioengineering may select courses in one of the following three streams:

  • Biological materials and mechanics
  • Biomolecular and cellular engineering
  • Biomedical, diagnostics, and high throughput screening engineering
