What is iBioMed?



At McMaster University, we’re transforming healthcare challenges into a new learning experience with the Integrated Biomedical Engineering & Health Sciences (iBioMed) program. We’re bringing together the best of our top-ranked health sciences and engineering programs into a hands-on, project-based program with a strong focus on entrepreneurship and learning to solve real-world problems by doing.

IBEHS 1 and Admissions

The Integrated Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences program has a common first year, also known as IBEHS 1.  This allows students to explore all degree path options before choosing a focus stream of either the Bachelor of Engineering and Biomedical Engineering (B.Eng. BME) or Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences in Health Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship (B.H.Sc.).  During the first year of study, iBioMed students develop a solid foundation in math and science, with a focus on biomedical engineering and the health science applications and are able to build a personal network of peers before moving to their level two streams.

Learn about the Admission process, from required courses and timelines to the Supplementary Application.

What is HESE?



The Health, Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship (HESE) program is a four-year program where students are required to complete core project and design-based courses from the iBioMed program in addition to courses that integrate Business and Engineering.

Co-op and 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.
