Design Studio

The IBBME Design Studio is an instructional and collaboration space for biomedical engineering design and education.

It is located in the basement floor of the Lassonde Mining Building (MB) at 170 College Street and comprised of two distinct spaces for advanced learning.

The suites enable interdisciplinary course delivery, training and career development opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students across the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine.

Both spaces have open-access hours available to students across the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering for the completion of course assignments and design projects. Reservation priority will be given to students in biomedical engineering.

Student clubs may also request access to this space. Fees for time and materials use may apply.
