About this course

New discoveries and developments in biology and medicine have led to the rapid change and growth of biotechnology research and industry. Biomedical Engineering bridges the gap between technology, medicine and biology. It integrates physical, chemical, mathematical and computational sciences and engineering principles with the ultimate aim of improving health care. The degree commences with a broad foundation of preparatory courses in engineering, mathematics, biology and physics, followed by more advanced coursework and laboratory training, combining engineering analysis and design techniques with biology and physiology of cells and organisations. The program is project-focussed including a full-year project in fourth year to develop individual design and research skills, an approach valued by employers. Graduates of biomedical engineering may be involved in the design, construction and development of health and monitoring devices and computers, diagnostic systems and therapeutic systems. They may also work with models of physiological function and prosthetics and implants.

Employment opportunities:

As a biomedical engineer, you may be involved in the design, construction and development of health and monitoring devices or computers, diagnostic systems (such as CT, MRI and ultrasound), and therapeutic systems (such as surgical lasers and tissue engineering).You could also work with models of physiological function (such as a virtual heart), and with prosthetics and implants (such as cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators and artificial organs). Employment opportunities include hospitals, biotechnology companies, medical equipment manufacturers, research institutes, and government health departments.
