    Course Summary

    Ryerson University s Master of Applied Science (MASc) in Biomedical Engineering is a complex, interdisciplinary program delivered in part by research hospitals such as the University Health Network and St. Michael’s Hospital. 

    It is designed for undergraduates with strong mathematical skills and a firm understanding of the life sciences. It will explore applications for engineers within the healthcare industry, and is delivered in state of the art facilities both inside and outside the university. You’ll learn from leading researchers in the field, and gain the kind of experience which can lead to a very rewarding career in a number of different fields and specialties. 

    You’ll study science, engineering and medical science, of course. You’ll also learn about the art of management and leadership in a professional context – just what you’ll need to pursue a career in biomedical engineering R&D, or any other specialty in line with your personal interests and intended career path. 

    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.

    Course Outline

    This degree program is typically delivered over one year of full time study, or over as many as three years at part time. The part time option is particularly attractive to prospective students who are already working in their chosen career, as it is designed to fit around existing work, family or personal commitments.  

    There are three degree pathways that you’ll have to choose from. They include:

    • The Biomaterials Pathway – looking at developing both natural and synthetic materials for medical purposes
    • The Biomechanics Pathway – designing medical implants, medical robotics or tissue engineering applications
    • The Biomedical Signals and Systems Pathway – designing biomedical sensors, imaging an signal processing equipment

    All of these pathways will benefit from using the Institute of Biomedical Sciences and Technology at St Michael’s Hospital.

    In total you’ll complete five core modules, a Master’s Research Paper and up to five electives which should be chosen to match your interests and ideal career pathway.

    Learning And Teaching

    Ryerson’s MASc program in Biomedical Engineering was designed to produce the researchers and practitioners of the future, in a very rapidly moving field. It offers very small class sizes, and many opportunities to interact directly with professors and experts on a one-on-one basis. 

    This program utilises many different learning methods. You’ll take part in formal lecture classes and engage in practical skills sessions. You’ll also attend do a great deal of work outside the university, depending on your chosen specialty. 

    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 of options.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a full MASc degree in 1 to 3 years.

    Applicants must typically have graduated from a Canadian or overseas 4 year degree program in Engineering, the Life Sciences, or in a closely related discipline or field. A GPA in the ‘B+’ range or the international equivalent is required.

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