Co-op and Careers

Careers

Graduates of this program will be uniquely positioned for careers in the biomedical engineering, biotechnology, and health and biomedical science sectors of the economy. They will also remain well-positioned for careers that fall within the spectrum of their engineering or health sciences discipline. They will be well equipped to pursue further studies in graduate research or professional health sciences careers, such as medicine, or take on entrepreneurship opportunities.

Engineering Co-op and Career Services (ECCS)

Students in the iBioMed program will have Co-op and Career Services available through the Faculty of Engineering.

As for all engineering disciplines at McMaster, students in our programmes have the opportunity of applying for an industrial internship. If successful, the student typically is employed on industrial placement from the May following his/her third year in the academic programmes and returns to school for Level 4 in September of the following year.  

Engineering Co-op and Career Services (ECCS) is a joint venture between the McMaster Engineering Society and the Faculty of Engineering.
