The BEng Biomedical Engineering is designed to prepare students to enter jobs in the evolving field of biomedical engineering, healthcare research or further study in medicine
Biomedical engineering graduates can enter directly into industry, such as a medical device or pharmaceutical company, or take a clinical engineering position in a hospital.
Biomedical engineers utilise a variety of disciplines including chemistry, physics, computer simulation and mathematical models to:
study signals generated by organs such as the brain, heart and skeletal muscle
build artificial organs, limbs, knees, hips, heart valves and dental implants
develop 3D simulations that apply physical laws to the movement of tissues and fluids to help understand how tissues and prosthetics work
Many biomedical engineers will go on to graduate level training such as a master’s or doctoral degree.
