Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary programme, which aims to provide you with both the understanding of biology and medical theories, and with highly specialized technical training in such fields as electrical, physics, material and mechanical engineering.

It involves the application of engineering principles and design concepts to solve problems in medicine and biology - a convergence of life sciences with engineering. Biomedical engineers are key players in the development, design, and continuing refinement of devices such as joint replacement prosthesis, microsensors, imaging and pattern recognition, as well as advanced instruments for use in such domains as minimally invasive surgery and movement disorders.
