The University of British Columbia in Canada offers a fully funded Master of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering. The MASc is a 2-year research-based program. The program trains students in the fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering and provides an extended research experience. The majority of graduate students in the department are offered research assistantships (RAs) by faculty members. RAs may be held in conjunction with Teaching Assistantships (TAs) and some scholarships. All full-time MASc/PhD students newly admitted to the MASc/PhD SBME program at the Vancouver campus will be provided with a minimum funding package of $23,000/year for MASc students for 2 years.
