About Biomedical Engineering

bionics lab

Waterloo launched the Biomedical Engineering undergraduate program in September 2014. This unique, accredited co-op program offers the interdisciplinary background, problem-solving skills, and hands-on experience needed to collaborate with biologists, medical practitioners, policy makers, and engineers in different fields. Students will graduate with the ability to design technologies and engineering solutions for complex health-related problems, including quality-of-care, public health, rehabilitation medicine, and sports medicine.

Mission Statement

Our primary mission is to provide our students with the best possible education to enable them to become wise and knowledgeable leaders. It is our objective to furnish our students with a solid engineering education that will equip them to think clearly, logically, and originally when they create solutions to challenging interdisciplinary problems.
