Engineering in MedicineCollaborative Specialization (Collaborative Specialization)
Describe your research.
The purpose of my research is to compare the stability of a total hip implant insert secured with either a bi-cortical or uni-cortical bone screw.
Where is “home” for you?
I come from the capital of Iran – Tehran, but I believe that home is where you can progress in your life and are satisfied with it.
Where’s your favourite place on campus?
My favourite place to study is Weldon Library because it has private study room for graduate students.

Engineering in Medicine is an interdisciplinary, non-thesis Master of Engineering (MEng) collaborative specialization offered at the Faculty of Engineering at The University of Western Ontario. Combining expertise from our departments of Chemical & Biochemical Engineering (CBE), Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) and Mechanical & Materials Engineering (MME), the Engineering in Medicine MEng specialization offers qualified engineering graduates (or equivalent) the opportunity to better understand the role of engineers in modern medicine. Students will explore innovative technologies that impact medical advancements and recognize opportunities for product development and commercialization. Learn more about specific courses.
- Full-time or part-time study
- Thesis-based, course-based or project-based
- The Collaborative Specialization does not provide additional funding beyond what the student receives through their home department.
Interested applicants should seek admission to one of the participating graduate programs in the Faculty of Engineering (CBE, ECE or MME) based on their prior academic background.
- Degree: Bachelor's degree in Engineering, or an equivalent degree from an accredited University. Students with a similar degree from another scientific discipline may be admitted, with the approval of the Associate Chair - Graduate.
- Marks: Minimum of 70% (B) grade average (North American), computed based on the last two years of a bachelor's honours degree marks, or on the previous graduate marks.
