MAJ03476 Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineers apply knowledge of engineering to the design and development of medical related products and systems. More specifically, biomedical engineers are responsible for developing biosensors, medical and physiological monitoring devices, prosthetic devices and artificial organs, physiological modelling, biomechanics or other assistive instrumentation. They are also increasingly engaged in conducting research that aims at improving the early detection of diseases, analyzing DNA sequence data.

The biomedical engineering major will provide students with advanced knowledge of this discipline. Through practice-oriented learning, this major will help students develop the essential knowledge and skills specialised in Genomics and Bioinformatics, or 3D Bio nanotechnology or Bio-instrumentation. Graduates will have the opportunity to develop skills in using 3D CAD design (Solidworks), prototyping, building nano devices, designing sensors, molecular diagnostics (PCR and sequencing), bioinformatics and printing biomaterials applicable to improve human health. Subjects are being taught in an interactive, and studio-like format, which is focused on industry informed problems.
