Biomedical engineering aims to improve human health by integrating engineering with biomedical science and clinical practice. The Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) (Honours) emphasises the application of electrical, electronics and systems engineering in medicine and biology. This allows students to explore the applications and challenges associated with biomedical engineering.
Students learn how to develop and use new technologies such as medical, instrumentation and prosthetic devices that can be used to advance and improve health care and the quality of life in communities. Practical workshops and industry projects are key features of the course.
Students apply their learning in a professionally focused, multidisciplinary project during their final year of study. They also undertake at least 12 weeks of relevant work experience and can choose to complete postgraduate-level elective units.
