Biomedical engineers create materials, devices and processes for better health outcomes.
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.
Biomedical engineers may be involved in the design, construction and development of health and monitoring devices and computers, implantable devices, diagnostic systems and therapeutic systems, cell and tissue engineering, and the development and manufacture of pharmaceuticals. They may also work with models of physiological function and prosthetics and implants.
This field of study combines our undergraduate engineering program with master’s level coursework and a semester-long placement or research thesis with an industry or research partner. These courses are designed to provide specialist knowledge of the various disciplines and place you closer to the leading edge of technology.
Industry needs graduates who can apply new technologies to existing and emerging industries. The master’s courses will give you a clear advantage when applying for jobs that require advanced skills and capabilities.
