Collaborative Biomedical Engineering

Collaborative Biomedical Engineering research

Over the past 25 years, interdisciplinary research in biomedical engineering has been undertaken at Queen's University, but in separate engineering departments. The departments of chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering are formally collaborating to support a new graduate biomedical engineering program that allows graduate students to access courses and co-supervisors in each department, as well as courses in Anatomy, Cell Biology and Biochemistry.


  • Students enroll in their respective home departments and must meet the program requirements of their home departments
  • There are two mandatory core courses which must be taken by all students in the program: 1) Topics in Biomedical Engineering (CBME801) and 2) Biomedical Engineering Seminar Series (CBME 802)
  • There will be opportunity for students to interact with students from the other disciplines in the program
  • Upon graduation, students will have "with specialization in Biomedical Engineering" added to their official transcripts
