Fast Track Biomedical Engineering Technology - Ingeniería Biomédica
Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles to developing technologies and solving problems in a diverse range of health care related fields e.g. implantable bionics, drug delivery systems, medical imaging, radiotherapies, orthopedic devices, telemedicine, robotic surgery, cell and tissue engineering, records management, physical rehabilitation and others.
This Graduate Diploma program provides graduates with opportunities to extend their professional knowledge. Candidates may undertake interdisciplinary studies and, subject to approval, are able to take courses from any school in the Engineering Faculty, other Faculties of the University and other universities or institutions. Consequently, study programs may be constructed to best suit to the individual needs of particular candidates.
completion of a recognized bachelor degree
meet English requirements.
* Some programs have additional entry requirements, please contact UNSW for this information.
The minimum period is 2 academic semesters (full-time) or 4 academic semesters (part-time) from the date of enrolment. The maximum period of candidature is 4 academic semesters (full-time) and 8 academic semesters (part-time). In special cases an extension of time may be granted.
Students must complete 48 units of credit comprising at least 42 UOC of postgraduate courses and at most one 6 UOC undergraduate course. Of these, at least 36 UOC must be from the postgraduate courses that constitute the 8660 Masters of Biomedical Engineering program. The remaining 12 UOC can be drawn from the postgraduate Biomedical Engineering courses, other postgraduate courses, subject to approval by the head of school, or one of ANAT2511 Fundamentals of anatomy or PHSL2121 Principles of Physiology A. (Note that the BIOM9914 Masters Project is not available in this program.)
Candidates who meet certain academic progress requirements (normally a credit average performance or better in their first semester) may be considered for transfer to the 8660 Masters program with advanced standing. Further enquiries should be made with the School.
