Master of Engineering (Biomedical with Business)

    • CRICOS Code: 069275C


    The Master of Engineering (Biomedical with Business) is a 2–3 year degree (full-time) depending on your prior study.

    Course structure

    First year

    In your first year (or equivalent) you’ll complete foundation engineering subjects – tailored to students from a non-engineering background. If you’ve completed the Bioengineering Systems major in your bachelor degree, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive credit for these foundation engineering subjects and start in second year.

    Second and third year

    In your second and third year (or equivalent), you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As a biomedical engineering student, you will learn about human systems and the design and operation of devices and processes that can be applied to new medical treatments, instruments and machines.

    You’ll undertake an industry, design or research project and gain the skills and knowledge to practice as a professional engineer.

    Business study

    Develop key business skills though subjects that have been tailored to the engineering profession and co-developed with the Melbourne Business School. Take five business subjects in areas including: engineering management, contracts and procurement, economic analysis, strategy execution and marketing management.

    Industry, design and research subjects

    BioDesign Innovation subject

    Experience entrepreneurship with our subject BioDesign Innovation. Here you’ll work with MBA students and experts from the medical sector to design a medical device that meets a real-world clinical need. Past teams – such as NAVi Technologies and Stelect – have gone on to win start-up competitions and are actively developing their devices for commercialisation.

    Design and capstone subjects

    Conduct research alongside our world-leading researchers in biomedical engineering through our Biomedical Engineering Capstone Subject. Work on an innovative project sponsored by an industrial client, or pursue your own exploratory research.

    Be guided in how to produce an advanced biomedical engineering design in Biomedical Engineering Design Project. You might design an advanced pacemaker or sensor, create new methods to deliver personalised medical treatments or design a device that can interface with the brain. You’ll have the opportunity to present your findings to the public at our annual engineering showcase, the Endeavour Engineering and IT Exhibition.
