Learn to use point-of-care, industry-standard devices to medically monitor cardiopulmonary, renal and neurophysiology systems.

Clinical Technologies shares five units with biomedical engineering, giving you lab time with students whose specific skillset complements your own knowledge of health and biology. 

We’ve developed this tech-savvy curriculum with professional bodies, and we encourage you to register with our industry networks at the start of your degree, so you can build your CV while you study. 

Many graduates of this major now enjoy careers as clinical physiologists, testing patients in hospital cardiac, respiratory, renal, neurophysiology, and sleep labs.

Our Bachelor of Health Science leads to a wide range of rewarding jobs in the fast-growing health industry — or more specialised postgraduate study.

You’ll have access to cutting-edge, industry-relevant tech in our campus labs; prepping you for a career that relies on it.

You’ll complete core units across multiple fields of health science to explore contemporary challenges and their possible interventions along with a major based on your interest and career aspirations. This could lead to postgraduate studies at Swinburne in physiotherapy, dietetics, occupational therapy or counselling.

All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. In this degree, a major component of your studies will be an industry-linked project, which addresses a current industry challenge. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for a career-focused placement or an internship, allowing you to build a professional network before you graduate.
