This course is discontinued and is no longer available for admissions.
Biomedical engineers bridge the gap between technology, medicine and biology. Within this specialisation, students choose to focus on areas including biomechanical engineering, bioengineering, bioinformatics, biocellular engineering, biosignals, neuroengineering and clinical engineering.
Students also benefit from the high standing of services provided by the University and the Melbourne School of Engineering for biomedical innovation.
Intended learning outcomes
In addition to the learning outcomes of the Master of Engineering, students successfully completing the Master of Engineering (Biomedical) degree should:
- have gained knowledge and practice in medical technologies, health informatics and healthcare that has societal and economic impact through innovation, translation and commercialisation;
- have gained knowledge and practice in the design and operation of devices and processes, and the application of engineering skills to new medical treatments, instruments and machines;
- have acquired knowledge and practice in anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, biotransport processes, biomaterials, electronic circuits, bioinstrumentation, and biomedical engineering regulation;
- have acquired knowledge and practice in advanced biomedical engineering topics which might include computational biomechanics, medical imaging, neural information processing, computational genomics, tissue and soft matter engineering, and systems and synthetic biology;
- have developed problem solving and trouble shooting skills that may be applied in professional practice;
- have gained knowledge and practice in biomedical engineering management including economics, intellectual property, ethics, regulation, and the law as it applies to the biomedical engineering profession;
- have the ability to complete a piece of original research either within an industrial setting or in a laboratory, involving the collection of data, its quantitative analysis and interpretation.
