Overview

These include the design of medical devices such as artificial hearts, implants and prostheses, the development and selection of bio-compatible metallic and non-metallic materials for implants and medical equipment, robotics for medical applications, biomechanics and rehabilitation engineering. 

The Biomedical Mechanical Engineering and Computing Technology program at University of Ottawa structure parallels that of the regular Mechanical Engineering program, replacing eight courses in the regular program with biomedically-oriented courses. 

This program has a broad scope, so that graduates may have a wide range of career choices, not only in the biomedical field but also in conventional mechanical engineering. Biomedical systems are among the most complex of mechanical systems; therefore, a strong and comprehensive education in standard mechanical engineering principles is provided, with emphasis on their application in biomedical systems.
