Graduate Courses

The University of Alberta offers graduate courses in many departments related to biomedical engineering. Undergraduate courses, if required, are generally credited as one-half of a graduate course. The list below gives titles of some of the courses (plus Department and some undergraduate courses), descriptions of the courses being found here. For information on courses available during specific terms, please refer to Beartracks. In general, departments require their students to successfully complete a given number of graduate courses, but in many cases will allow the student to take a course offered by another department if deemed relevant to their program. Some departments will also allow students to take undergraduate courses if the student is not fully versed in the area of the course, and if it is considered important to the student’s degree.

Please note: Certain courses may sometimes not be available in a given term.
