Engineering Minor

In addition to academic programs in Core 8 subjects/TrackOne and Engineering Science, undergraduate Engineering students may pursue a number of minors and certificates that add breadth and depth to their academic careers.

The Faculty offers paths to gain minors in engineering disciplines such as Environmental Engineering, Sustainable Energy and Bioengineering and certificate programs such as Entrepreneurship and Global Engineering. In addition, Engineering students may pursue minors offered by Departments in the Faculty of Arts & Science.

Specifically designed for undergraduate engineering students interested in applying their engineering knowledge to applications in health care, the Biomedical Engineering Minor is a specialized program that emphasizes opportunities in fields ranging from pharmaceutical and therapeutic technologies, medical devices, medical diagnostics, health care delivery, health regulatory and policy development, medical diagnostic technologies, to biomedical devices and bioinformatics.

The Biomedical Engineering minor will prepare students for direct entry into the applied biomedical engineering industry with a particular specialization in biomedical technologies. Students who successfully complete the Biomedical Engineering Minor will be trained and specialize in areas of bioinstrumentation, biostatistics, biomedical laboratory techniques, biological and biomedical imaging, biomaterials development and processing, biomechanics and rehabilitation technologies, biosystems and quantitative physiology, and cellular, tissue and molecular engineering.

To help select complementary BME courses that are best aligned with their career objectives, students are provided with a faculty mentor upon registration in the minor.
All Engineering undergraduates are eligible to enrol in this minor, except Engineering Science students in the Biomedical Engineering Option.
