  • Tenure Track Faculty Positions in Biomedical Engineering

    Biomedical Engineering (BME) is among the most dynamic, multi-disciplinary, and rapidly evolving areas that plays a significant role in expanding the capabilities of healthcare and the ways it will be delivered in the future. The BME program at Ryerson University is housed in, and administrated by, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and is exhibiting continued growth. Ryerson’s B.Eng. BME program was the first and only standalone undergraduate Biomedical Engineering program in English Canada at the time of its inception in 2008, and remains the first one to be fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. Being housed in a strategic downtown campus at Ryerson University, located in the heart of Downtown Toronto, the largest and most culturally diverse city in Canada, the BME program benefits from the proximity to Toronto’s Medical Discovery District and seven world-class hospitals.
