Fast Track Biomedical Engineering Technology - Ingeniería Biomédica
Biomedical engineers address healthcare problems from a unique perspective, blending an understanding of biomedical science with specialist knowledge of engineering techniques and problem solving skills.
You will focus on human systems, the design and operation of devices and processes and the application of engineering skills to new medical treatments, instruments and machines.
Our reputation for biomedical innovation in areas such as developing the bionic ear and eye, and targeted drug delivery systems, ensures you are learning from leaders in the field, who are working on exciting projects aimed at solving major health dilemmas.
The Master of Engineering (Biomedical) will provide you with a formal qualification in biomedical engineering at the Masters level.
One of the following undergraduate degrees with a Bioengineering Systems major or sequence:
with a weighted average mark of at least H3 (65%).
All students studying at the University of Melbourne must satisfy the University’s English language entry requirements. For graduate entry, Engineering offers an alternative.
