The University of Saskatchewan, through the College of Graduate Studies and Research, sustains the Division of Biomedical Engineering to foster interdisciplinary research linking Engineering and the Physical Sciences with the Biological Sciences and Human and Veterinary Medicine.
The dominant areas of research interest among our faculty include: biomechanics, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonography, biomedical signal and image processing, applications of artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic and expert systems, physiological system modeling, and medical instrumentation.
Our Division offers post-graduate programs leading to the Master of (Clinical) Engineering [M. Eng], Master of Engineering, Master of Science [M. Sc.], and Doctor of Philosophy [Ph. D.] degrees. The former is a professional specialization in clinical engineering for students with a Bachelor of Engineering Degree; the latter three are research-oriented or design-oriented programs for students with a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering, Natural Science, Health Science, or Computer Science.
