The Department of Biosystems Engineering offers an accredited degree program in Biosystems Engineering. The discipline of Biosystems Engineering emphasizes the application of engineering principles to biologically-centred systems. Biosystems engineers help to create new technologies for the well-being of humans and animals, and the preservation and enhancement of natural resources and the environment. The Biosystems Engineering program is designed to give students knowledge of the fundamental principles of engineering and introduces biological concepts to enable these engineers to successfully interact with relevant professionals when solving engineering problems involving biological systems. The program is offered in both a traditional and a co-operative education format. The department offers three Specializations (Biomedical, Bioresource and Environmental) and one Minor (Agribusiness). A bachelor’s degree in Biosystems Engineering meets the requirements for admission to the Faculty of Medicine.
A minor in Agribusiness is available to Biosystems Engineering students. The minimum requirement is 18 credit hours consisting of:
|ECON 1010||Introduction to Microeconomic Principles||3|
|ECON 1020||Introduction to Macroeconomic Principles||3|
|ABIZ 1000||Introduction to Agribusiness Management||3|
|ABIZ 2510||Introduction to Agricultural and Food Marketing||3|
|ABIZ 2520||Introduction to Management Sciences||3|
|Select at least three additional credit hours from the Department of Agribusiness and Agricultural Economics||3|
Students must meet all prerequisite requirements. A maximum of 3 courses (9 credit hours) of courses used for the minor may also be used to fulfil course requirements in Biosystems Engineering.
Admission to Medicine
The Bachelor of Science degree in Biosystems Engineering provides the background to meet eligibility requirements for admission into the Max Rady College of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. Students planning to apply for entrance to Medicine after completing the B.Sc. in Biosystems Engineering are advised to consult with the Max Rady College of Medicine for admission requirements.
