Bioengineering Systems

    Overview

    If you can’t choose between operating robots and operating theatres, then the Bioengineering Systems major is for you.

    Biomedical engineering operates at the intersection between new technologies and understandings of how biological systems work. A fusion of medicine, engineering and science makes it the fastest-growing, and most exciting and challenging discipline in engineering today.

    You’ll study elements of engineering, science and medicine, and learn to use all three to develop new and improved medical treatments, processes and instruments.

    University of Melbourne bioengineers are working on groundbreaking innovations like the bionic eye, implants that help control epilepsy and improved ways of delivering life-saving drugs to the body. Follow this major through to the Master of Engineering and imagine what you could do next.

    Studying a bioengineering major through Science leads directly to a Master of Engineering (Biomedical) or Master of Engineering (Biomedical with Business) and professional registration as an engineer.

    The central aim of completing this major, followed by a Master of Biomedical Engineering, is to help students become fluent in both the languages of biology and engineering. As a graduate, you will be well placed at the epicentre of this 21st century revolution in medicine and the treatment of disease.

    You can study this major in the Bachelor of Biomedicine or the Bachelor of Science
