Admission to Level II IBEHS Programs
Admission to either the B.H.Sc. (Honours) Health, Engineering Science and Entrepreneurship (HESE) specialization or the B.Eng.BME Biomedical Engineering (BME) specialization requires successful completion of all non-elective Level I IBEHS courses with a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 4.0.
All students who successfully complete the first year of the program will have a space in one of the two degree options. As enrolment is limited in each of the two degree options (HESE or BME), where there is more demand than spaces, competition will be based on first-year academic achievement. Note: BME is a five-year program, while HESE is a four-year program (effective September 2022).
Entry into the five-year Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences (B.H.Sc. (Honours)), Health, Engineering Science & Entrepreneurship (HESE) program is last available in September 2022.
Effective September 2023, Level I students interested in the B.H.Sc. (Honours) HESE program will apply for the four-year program.
Students who enrolled in the five-year B.H.Sc. (Honours) HESE program prior to September 2022 and are not scheduled to graduate in June 2022, are given the choice to remain in the five-year program or transfer into the four-year B.H.Sc. (Honours) HESE program.
Students seeking admission to the BME specialization will be admitted to one of eight Level II Engineering programs (Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Engineering Physics, Materials, Mechanical, Mechatronics, or Software). Admission to a Level II Engineering program is guaranteed for all students who meet the general progress requirements. All engineering programs have limited enrolment; should there be more applicants than the limiting number in any program, admission to that program will be based on GPA.
Students who do not meet the requirements to proceed to Level II in May will have a Pending flag put on their allocation. The Pending flag will be removed in August if the student completes the requirements over the summer.
