We are the pioneers in undergraduate biomedical computing, one of the most promising fields in health research. This innovative program combines the problem-solving capabilities of computer science with the most advanced techniques of the life sciences, resulting in endless possibilities for improving health care. This program is suitable for many careers, including medicine and medical research.
What follows is a list of the required unit credits for the Biomedical Computation Focus of the Computing Major and Computer Science Specialization. (Note: there are additional requirements for the Computer Science Specialization.) This information is meant as a guide and is subject to change. The precise and up-to-date requirements for Computing degree plans can be found online in the Arts and Science Calendar. In case of discrepancies, the calendar should be considered as the official definition.
Typical 4-years honours programs consist of 120 unit credits. A one-term course is worth 3 units, while a full year (two-term) course is worth 6 units. All courses listed below are 3 units unless specified with a /6.0 after the course code.
Admission to a degree program in the Faculty of Arts and Science from an Ontario Secondary School is based on the completion of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Please see Admissions for details.
Apply at the Ontario Universities Application Centre using the program code QD (Queen's University, Computing).
Upon completion of first year, students must declare that they are entering a Computing Major, but will not need to specify Biomedical Computation.
