Students in the Biomedical Engineering (BME) Graduate Program are interested in cutting-edge, multidisciplinary biomedical research. The BME Graduate Program enables graduate students to undertake MEng (Thesis), MSc, or PhD programs that intersect the fields of engineering, kinesiology, medicine, science and veterinary medicine.

The BME Graduate Program is jointly coordinated by the Schulich School of Engineering, Cumming School of Medicine and Faculty of Kinesiology, with additional participating faculty members from the Faculties of Science and Veterinary Medicine. The BME Graduate Program supports the University of Calgary’s Engineering Solutions for Health: Biomedical Engineering Research Strategy. By coordinating and consolidating complementary research and teaching programs across the University of Calgary and linking with health care facilities, the BME Graduate Program forms an integral part of a Canadian centre of excellence in BME graduate education and research.

The unique, multi-disciplinary, design of this program means our trainees have access to cutting edge research laboratories and equipment.

The BME Graduate Program was approved by The University of Calgary Board of Governors in 1997. It was initially funded by a three-year Whitaker Foundation Special Opportunity Award, part of a joint proposal with the University of Alberta. Provincially based activities continue to this day and are highlighted by the now University of Calgary-led Alberta BME Conference. This annual meeting now includes participation from the University of Lethbridge, as well as other western Canadian BME programs. The meeting attracts over 160 individuals and has been held every year since 2000 in Banff, Alberta.

While the BME Graduate Program is an established program supporting a diverse research community, it continues to evolve in response to new opportunities and changing needs of students and the biomedical community in Alberta. It is a key component of The University of Calgary’s Eyes High vision and supports both the university’s academic and research plans, particularly the strategic research theme of Engineering Healthcare Solutions.

Areas of Biomedical Engineering

-Bioelectricity
-Biomechanics
-Cell and tissue engineering (or biomaterials)
-Imaging
-Bioinstrumentation
-Clinical engineering
-Rehabilitation engineering

The University of Calgary is recognized as a leader in the first four areas, and is actively growing expertise in bioinstrumentation. Bioelectricity, biomechanics, cell and tissue engineering (biomaterials) and imaging represent the current four themes of the BME Graduate Program.

BME research at the University of Calgary is carried out in numerous locations throughout engineering, kinesiology, medicine, science, and veterinary medicine. BME active university and hospital-based research centers and institutes include, the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute, the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta, the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health, the Calgary Centre for Innovative Technology, the Experimental Imaging Centre, the Human Performance Laboratory, the Pharmaceutical Production Research Facility, the Seaman Family MR Research Centre, and the Sports Medicine Centre.

The MA program at the University of Calgary supplies students with a strong foundation of theoretical and empirical knowledge. Students can also diversify their academic portfolio by choosing their own areas of specialization. Areas of specialization at our Department of Economics include, but are not limited to: international trade, environmental economics, industrial organization, and behavioral economics.

We offer two different M.A. programs: Course- Based and Thesis-Based.

Our Course-based MA program is a twelve month program consisting of both course work and a major research project. Approximately 20 students are admitted to this program every year. This program is designed to prepare students for employment in the public or private sector, or to pursue further studies in a PhD program. Recent graduates have taken positions at such institutions as Canadian Pacific, BMO Financial Group, and the Alberta Utilities Commission.

Our Thesis-based MA program is intended for MA students with a greater interest in independent research. In return for a slightly reduced course load, students are required to prepare and orally defend a formal thesis (original research). Students usually complete this program in 12 to 24 months and recent graduates have gone on to work in such institutions as Industry Canada and have earned placement in PhD programs ranging from UBC to Princeton University.

Our faculty continuously receive funding from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council as well as other agencies. Some members of our faculty also hold Tier I and II Canada Research Chairs. Because of this, we can offer our M.A. students ample opportunity to gain research experience at the University of Calgary. Given our large undergraduate base, M.A. students have a very high likelihood of consistently getting a full Teaching Assistantship position each semester.

Our students have access to a plethora of information pertinent to their research and learning through our libraries which includes textbooks, handbooks and journals in all the specializations that we offer. We are also home to a federal data centre that permits students to apply directly for their own research agendas.

We encourage our senior students to participate in a mentoring program for incoming students. If you are anxious about joining our Economics department, coming to the university, or living in Calgary in general, you can request a mentor to help you adjust to the University of Calgary lifestyle.

M.A. students have access to a number of recreational facilities including a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, and squash courts. Access to such facilities is included with tuition. Our department holds start of semester welcoming parties, Christmas parties and a variety of social events are carried out by our student graduate association.

MA Course-based

The standard course-based MA program is a twelve month combination of formal coursework and closely supervised structured research. Students complete two semesters of course work in the fall and winter terms and must complete no less than seven one semester graduate courses. In addition to the standard seven one semester graduate courses, students are required to enroll in a set of four research methods courses over the course of their twelve month program of study. These courses are conducted by active researchers in the economics department and are intended to provide structure and help for students through the process of conducting original research in economics. The program is capped by a formal research paper which is completed over the spring and summer semesters. Students are required to present their paper at the department’s annual “open conference” held in August.

MA Thesis-based

The Thesis based MA program is similar to the course based but replaces the closely supervised structured research with a less formal supervision arrangement. Instead of enrolling in the four research methods courses, thesis based students will be expected to find a single faculty member to supervise their research. The research paper requirement is also replaced by a formal thesis. The quality and originality of a formal thesis is required to be higher than that of the course based research paper. Additionally, thesis based students are required to undergo a formal oral thesis defense. Given the increased demands of a formal thesis, thesis based students are required to take six one semester graduate courses rather than the seven required for course based students.

The Master of Arts program offers students in a wide range of disciplines the opportunity to earn a master’s degree by writing a thesis and successfully completing a limited number of courses. The number and details of the courses are determined within the first semester of the student's program.

Students may complete their degrees in either a full- or part-time capacity. Full-time students complete a 24-month program while part-time students complete a 48-month program. Part-time students will normally complete all required course work in the first 24 months, with the subsequent months committed to continued research and production of the Thesis.

Although degrees are awarded in specific disciplines, the program is administered centrally by the School of Graduate Studies, rather than by individual departments or Faculties.

Graduate degrees traditionally have been awarded for the successful completion of a satisfactory Thesis. The Thesis route expresses the fundamental tradition of academic scholarship. It also relates to the University’s undergraduate programs, because the creation of a Thesis in any discipline calls for a range of skills which are central to the liberal education tradition, including analysis and synthesis of ideas, empirical investigations, the construction and articulation of arguments, and writing skills.

Because of the nature of the M.A. program, the Thesis forms the central requirement of the program. At the master’s level, a Thesis involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. Consequently, it is necessary for a candidate to establish contact with potential supervisors prior to application for admission. Candidates seeking potential supervisors should contact either the relevant academic department or the School of Graduate Studies.

The Master of Education (MEd), Interdisciplinary route is a course-based pathway which provides students with a systematic understanding of knowledge, and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights, much of which is at, or informed by, the forefront of their academic discipline, field of study or area of professional practice in two topic areas.

In this degree pathway, students may choose to complete a topic (4 courses, 12 units) each year and may continue to stack two topics towards a Master of Education (MEd), in Interdisciplinary Studies. Topics are offered in face-to-face, fully online and blended formats, which combine both face-to-face and online delivery throughout the program.

Program Delivery

Topics are offered in different formats including face-to-face, blended and online options. Many topics begin with face-to-face classes at the University of Calgary, during the first part of July, with online follow up. Courses 2 (Fall), 3 (Winter), and 4 (Spring) are delivered fully online. Check each topic to confirm format for delivery.

The fully online courses are held in both an asynchronous environment (D2L) and a synchronous (real-time) environment (Adobe Connect) which allows instructors to virtually meet and talk with students and experience a live exchange of ideas, hear class presentations and do group work with access to a whiteboard. There are typically no more than 5 sessions over a 13-week term (Fall and Winter) and fewer over a 6-week term (Spring and Summer).

Come and be part of Canada’s newest school of Landscape Architecture. The University of Calgary launched the Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) in the Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS) in September 2015. This is the first graduate program in landscape architecture in Canada to be launched since 1980, and is situated in the geographically and culturally dynamic context of Alberta and Western Canada. Our program is strategically positioned to engage with the critical sociocultural and ecological challenges of place- making, climate change and resilience. Our MLA is intended as a program for the 21st century - to be leaders and to train leaders in becoming catalysts for positive local and global change.

The Master of Landscape Architecture program complements the existing professional, accredited programs in Architecture and Planning to create a strong, robust and inter-related triad of graduate programs dealing with the built environment. The MLA is a three-year course-based program consisting of a foundation year plus two years at the Master’s level, and we will be seeking accreditation through the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA).

The MLA Program at the University of Calgary is a member of the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Council (LAAC) Candidacy
program, which is specifically designed to allow the LAAC to work closely with the program to position it for a successful initial accreditation. Immediately following the graduation of our first cohort in the spring of 2018, we will be applying for accreditation.
Assuming that the review is successful, the program will be formally accredited, and this will be retroactive to all graduates of the first class from the spring of 2018. We are working closely with the LAAC to ensure that our curriculum addresses the requirements of accreditation, and anticipate a preliminary review visit in early 2017 to help us to prepare.

The program in EVDS is unique and distinctive:
-It is a program for the 21st Century and aims to sustainably address the critical issues facing settlements, societies and environments, using a landscape-based approach
-It emphasizes and builds on the faculty’s strengths in the areas of urban design, ecological design, regional planning, and cultural landscapes
-Our faculty emphasis on interdisciplinary is expressed through the overlapping relationships with the Master of Architecture and Master of Planning programs
-Our faculty structure, which allows a student to ladder from a course-based professional degree program to a thesis-based research degree (MEDes or PhD), facilitates the further development of creativity and innovative approaches to critical issues into the future

Pathologists’ Assistants (PAs) are “physician extenders” for anatomic pathologists. PAs perform delegated medical tasks under the supervision of a medically qualified pathologist. They perform initial examination, dissection, and gross description of surgically removed tissues, assist in dissection of bodies during autopsies, and perform intraoperative frozen sections. They possess highly standardized skills related to each of these procedures which allow pathologists to spend more of their time looking at slides.

The Master of Pathologists' Assistant (MDPA) program is a two year continuous course-based masters program that will include both in class work along side practicum components.

All students are considered full-time. Part-time status may be considered and must be approved by the Graduate Program Director.

History

The University of Calgary has launched a new Pathologists' Assistant (PA) M.Sc. training program as a specialization within the Medical Sciences Graduate Program starting July 2012. In 2015 the Master of Pathologists' Assistant program was fully approved through the University of Calgary and Alberta Government to start taking students in September 2016.

Career Prospects

After graduation, students are eligible to sit the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) PA board-certification examination.

The job market for board-certified PAs is excellent, with jobs available in Alberta and throughout North America.
