    Course Summary

    The University of Dalhousie’s Master of Applied Science (MASc) in Biomedical Engineering is a complex, interdisciplinary program delivered in part by the School of biomedical Engineering but also by the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Engineering. You’ll have to select a preferred research area when applying for this course.

    The research areas currently being pursued at Dalhousie’s School of Biomedical Engineering include:

    • Imaging and Medical Technology
    • Dynamics of Human Motion
    • Biosignals and Physiological Modelling
    • Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering

    Researchers at the school also do significant amounts of work in sub-fields like kinesiology, orthopaedic implants and a range of biomechanical specialties (cardiac, orthopaedic, cellular and respiratory).

    A closely related program is Dalhousie’s BioMedic NSERC CREATE training program in Biomedical Technology, Innovation, and Commercialization. This is delivered in partnership with the Business School, and focuses more on the technological needs of medical settings and the business side of medical technology.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    Dalhousie University’s Master of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering program is delivered via many teaching methods, including lectures and seminars, professional skills workshops and special events. Some modules may be available via distance learning. Note that depending on your undergraduate degree, you may have to take some additional undergraduate courses.

    Typically you’ll spend only 8 months of the 2 year program in classes. The rest will be dedicated to research and crafting your thesis.

    Career Possibilities

    An MASc in Biomedical Engineering is an advanced, highly specialised degree which allows access to what has been described as one of the ‘best careers in North America’. Biomedical Engineering has a high median income and very good job satisfaction on average.

    You may opt to enter medical school upon graduation, or to take more advanced studies in a medically-adjacent field like physiology, neuroscience or medical imaging. You’ll have plenty f options.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 2 year MASc degree.

     Applicants must typically have completed a Baccalaureate degree, or the international equivalent. GRE scores are particularly helpful for overseas applicants, as well.

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test such as the TOEFL.
