Biomedical engineers work at the intersection of medicine, engineering, science and other disciplines to solve health challenges. Biomedical engineering is much more than applying engineering methods to living organisms. As a graduate, you will have the confidence and ability to communicate with different players in the life science fields, from clinicians and nurses to designers, scientists and other engineers. You will be able to see present needs and identify future solutions. Engineering solutions for health is one of the research priorities at the University of Calgary, with interdisciplinary research involving more than 300 faculty from the engineering school and non-traditional biomedical fields like nursing, veterinary medicine and kinesiology. There is a growing biomedical industry in Alberta and in Canada that needs graduates with skills that range from problem solving to teamwork and interpersonal communication.
