Biomedical Engineering

Improving health is where biology meets engineering and clinical practice.

We understand biomedical engineering has made significant contributions to the 21st century medical environment. That’s why we offer biomedical engineering at Swinburne.

Biomedical engineering is an opportunity to improve human health by integrating engineering with biomedical science and clinical practice. We place an emphasis on foundational knowledge and practical skills. With a specialisation in biomedical engineering, you’ll learn how to apply electrical, electronics and systems engineering in medicine and biology. It’s our way of demonstrating the applications and challenges associated with biomedical engineering. You’ll also gain experience in developing and using new technologies, including medical, instrumentation and prosthetic devices, and discover the properties of materials used in the formation of these devices.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to the workplace. Future careers can be found in hospitals, clinical and para-clinical departments, research, medical imaging and more.

I wanted to make a career out of helping others but also wanted to stand out from the crowd. That’s why I came to Swinburne! I had an invaluable experience during my paid placement at Draeger, an international leader in medical technology. Now, I’m starting Swinburne’s first Biomedical Engineering Club and my journey’s just getting better and better.
